    Default Re: Professionally curated and design-worthy free fonts on the web

    Hi Gary,
    I have been trying to detective my way to finding the originator and license for the Russel Write TT font. It appears to already be installed on my system either via Xara or CorelDraw, and several sites have it listed as "unknown" and "free," while other have it listed as "donationware" and have you as the author.

    I am considering using the font in a commercial video game app I'm creating, both as the main font and as a basis for building some illuminated woodblock-style lettering. Can you clarify the terms of use for me please?

    Thanks kindly,
    JJ

    I'm flattered.


    It came with CorelDRAW. because I show how to create a version of it in one of the CorelDRAW guides from the 1990s.

    Glad you contacted me, because the font is NOT free, and some of these "scrapeware" sites usey typefaces without telling and without my permission.

    That id, the Donationware version requires no payment to me, but Barbara (our Administrator and spouse) and I would like you to pass along some good Karma for the price of my work.

    God a few bucks—the size of the gift is up to you and your conscience—to:

    ❤ Doctors without Borders

    ❤ Any relief fund for the Untied States, because some people don't believe in Climate Change and we're getting hurricanes like never before, flooding, and our local temperature has been so bzarre for the past five ars, we were't able to grow and apples on our trees, nor blackberries.

    ❤ Or Goodwill.
    ☒ We used to encourage donations to Th Salvation Army, but their CEO now makes ˝ mill/yr.

    ❤Give a sandwich to a homeless person. Give therm deposit cans or bottle you'd otherwise throw out.

    ❤Help an elderly person up the stairs or onto a bus.

    _______________________________________________

    I have a version2.0, but its commercial, not free.

    Stick to the Donationware version.

    My Best,

    Gary

    Good Karma be with you, always!

    The Karma doesn't come from me, though. I'm just the messenger.

    The people whose life you touch are a reflection of how the Universe feels about you.

    Too cosmic, huh?

    I'm now looking over my shoulder in case anyone lifts me into a bus, regardless!
