Fonts cannot be shared and when they do not work right, you are not allowed to fix them. Making your own typefaces is
a black art, hidden in mystery.

A long time ago software pro-grams were the same, but the free software movement has freed the knowledge, the tools,
and the business of software.

Now it is time to free fonts. Dave Crossland reveals how to design typefaces using only libre software—and how to earn money doing it.

Las tipografías privativas no se pueden compartir, y cuando están mal, no se pueden componer. Hacer tu propia tipografía es un arte oscuro y envuelto en misterio.

Tiempo atrás el software solía ser igual, pero el movimiento del software libre liberó el conocimiento, las herramientas y el negocio del software.

Ahora es tiempo de liberar la tipografía. Dave Crossland revelara como diseñar tipografías, utilizando software libre y haciendo dinero con ellas.
