May Featuring Anisette™
Dyana Weissman of the Font Bureau used their Anisette typeface to bring us an unabashedly flowery May. Jean-François Porchez's font draws from the Art Deco lettering of French poster artist A. M. Cassandre.

April Featuring Freight™
Joshua Darden crafted this ambitious release for GarageFonts in 2005. Freight Serif and Sans are reliable text faces, and the inventive Micro is tuned for tiny print, but every font in the package has headline potential. It's one of the most refreshing and useful families of the last few years.

March Featuring Mustardo™ and Ketchupa™
Swedish designer Peter Bruhn tells the story of his typefaces featured in this month's newsletter: "One day at lunch, having a hamburger, I looked at the ketchup package and noticed how the ink in the print had spread and made the small size lettering look very round. Using Corpus Gothic as a template, I've tried to imitate this in Ketchupa and Mustardo."

February Featuring MVB Sirenne™
This month's desktop wallpaper is from designer Alan Greene, using MVB Sirenne, a typeface he designed with Mark van Bronkhorst. The elegant serif family, inspired by a rare, 18th-century book, brings antique hand lettering to the digital world with a full set of weights, small caps, and swash italics, with separate cuts for large and small settings.
