Is FontLab studio the best program to start out? I have no experience with any font editing software like FontLab, only illustrator. But i have for quite some time wanted to get my hands dirty and dive into a program like FontLab (it's the only one i have ever heard of).
But i was wondering, is it the best program for a completely newbie like me? Is it just the one and only program? I have seen it, tried out a demo really quick, but it looks very old school and feels very counter intuitive. Doesn't feel like a modern nice piece of software.
Or are there som easier way to start? If not, what books do you recommend regarding FontLab and type design in general?
