The FOAM fonts began as variations of my Oblique Text fonts.  I started over, rounding and reducing the number of serifs.  Then I expanded it to a set of six, which looks great italicized too.

To name the font, I had a little contest at Sage College of Albany, where I teach.  I got some good suggestions by e-mail, but my favorite was written anonymously on one of the flyers!

Each font includes upper- and lowercase, numbers, punctuation, and international characters.
