FLORES is my digital creation of a “flower power” style font from the late 60s or early 70s. I started this in 2001, inspired by a florist’s sign in Valencia, Spain. I had only the letters F L O R E S and made up the rest; later I was given examples FLEURDON and SACHET DISCRET and expanded the font accordingly. But I still have not tracked down the original font or its name. Version 1.5 has an expanded character set and improved spacing and kerning.    

COMET was inspired by the (former) logo of Country Music Television. Clicking past this cable channel, I was attracted to its logo and set out to make a font that would allow you to type anything with that back-and-forth-within-blocks look.

Solo font books from Dover. There is a nice shareware version called FLORALIES by Keith Field and a free but bumpy adaptation (called Daisyland and uncredited) in FontPak1.zip. (Thanks… continued

BEND IT is a my fourth and final take-off on the classic 60s flower font Daisyland*. The others are Calaveras, Heartland, and Peace. One of my font correspondents (Nancy, the soccer mom) suggested this and it was a nice diversion. Parodied on Something Awful as “Clipart Clutter…An excellent choice for the proud mom with more free time than things to say.” Includes 2 versions of each letter, plus numbers, punctuation, and international characters. And a few extra balls in the { } | [ ] \ ^ positions. *The Daisyland font appears under that name in the Dan X. Solo… continued
