Agfa Monotype has added several to its online website, including FineFonts, PixieType, RJH Productions, Typebox, and Ultimate Symbol. The collections total over 100 new fonts: "This is an exceptional crop of releases," said Allan Haley, director of words and letters at Agfa Monotype. "From pixel-based screen fonts, to progressive display designs and practical image fonts, these new collections will satisfy many of our customer's existing needs while inspiring new solutions."

  • Fine Fonts was formed in 2000 by longtime industry veterans, Michael Harvey
    and Andy Benedek. Their work has led to seven new font products on
    including Aesop, a graceful design based on a pen-drawn script, and Fine
    Gothic, a blackletter typeface inspired by those of the 20th century
    German designer, Rudolf Koch. Most of the seven FineFonts products are
    available in Macintosh PostScript and Windows TrueType formats.
    Individual fonts are available for $32 with the lone volume priced at $88.

  • PixieType fonts are created primarily for on-screen usage in Flash,
    Photoshop and other pixel-based applications. The pragmaticly-designed
    Bossa and the futuristic Ellus families remain clear and legible
    on-screen when used at their intended point size of eight. The 18 PixieType
    fonts are available in Macintosh and Windows TrueType formats starting at

    broadcast campaigns worldwide. The two RJH products are available for
    Macintosh and Windows platforms in various formats and are priced at $38 and
    $50 respectively.

  • Typebox describes its product line as "unusual but useful." It includes Lithium, a heavy, rounded, technology-inspired design, and Manifesto, an attention-grabbing headliner with squared condensed letterforms. The 38 Typebox products are available in Macintosh PostScript and TrueType formats. Individual fonts start at $32 with packages of two or more designs starting at $82.

  • Ultimate Symbol offers a comprehensive and practical collection of picture
    fonts. The handy USF Astronomy family features two collections of
    artistic takes on the moon and zodiac signs. USF Highway USA includes
    four sets of highway signs and symbols. The 73 Ultimate Symbol products are
