The annual sale at Comic Book Fonts has started. Comic Book Fonts has some remarkable fonts that normally sell for hundreds of dollars. They are now all on sale for $20.14 (2014, get it?) I buy a new one every year and find use for these quality fonts in presentations and even some documents. Head over to comicbookfonts.com and get busy. If you haven't bought it yet, I recommend Hedge Backwards. I use that one all the time. This year I'm trying to decide between Code Monkey and Sign Language.
Mike Rohde, author of the Sketchnote Handbook and recent MPU Guest, just released the font he created for his book. In my opinion, 99% of all "handwriting" fonts look terrible. Mike's font fits in the 1%. There is even a web-friendly Typekit version. I plan on putting this font to use as well. For instance, this font is perfect for a Keynote presentation that I want to make feel informal. I'm also not beyond printing out a note card with this font and signing it, as if my printing were this good.
Today I received several notes about monospaced fonts following yesterday's post. Here are some more great monospaced fonts.
There is a Google Web font version of Inconsolata with bold. I've already upgraded.

This is a free font from Adobe and I'm really liking it. I'm trying it right now in Byword.

This is the font used in iA Writer and a lot of people love it. It costs €39.

Okay. I think monospaced fonts are out of my system now, for awhile.
