New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I never really see anyone here mention Harold Lohner. He has offered many free and $5 fonts which, some are quite nice. Besides my love for Sarah Script from Charles Borges de Oliveira, I have also been infatuated with Imitation from Harold. I just enjoy the face. If I ever did a poster about Paris in the early 1900s - that font would be perfect.
I received an email about Harold Lohner's art show, Wheel of Life- and I thought I'd share it with you. (You've probably received it as well, and if not - here goes.)

September News from Harold’s Fonts + Art Opening
Back to school, back to font-making...
But first I wanted to tell you about an opening this Friday. I’m doing a outdoor projection piece on the Opalka Gallery at Sage College of Albany, where I teach. “Wheel of Life” is a cycle of portrait drawings I made using a scanner. Here’s the invitation; please check it out. http://www.haroldsfonts.com/wheeloflife.pdf
The new font this month is SWEET SPIRIT, an intricate design that’s a cousin to my popular Graceful Ghost. Drawn with long flowing lines and adapted from a historical source, perfect for suggesting embroidery or engraving. Now available from Font Bros.
And thank you for the positive response to my new arrangement with Font Bros. It’s getting me a wider audience for my work. I appreciate those who’ve followed and supported my work for almost 10 years now. So many have asked that I provide easier shopping or encouraged me to charge more for commercial fonts. And I’m happy to be able to continue to offer free and $5 fonts as well.
