Albert Monteys's typography

Fonteys Typeface

Out there, in the wastelands of the comic-book typefaces, there are very few examples of fonts that really looks like handwritten. Many times it’s discouraging to look into the pages of some authors, many newbies and even some veterans. Their lettering is sloppy, they trust too much in fonts that don’t fit with their styles. But the worst problem is that almost no comic font manages to imitate the irregularity of an actual handwritten lettering.

The Fonteys is an attempt to correct that. It’s a font highly gestural, with a lot of variants for each letter to enhance the handwriting feeling. It’s feels like actual hand lettering. And, if were not enough, the Fonteys supports almost all latin languages, cylliric, greek, and even vietnamese.

The incredible talented comic-book artist, and Eisner nominated, Albert Monteys and the font designer Fernando Fuentes have joined to offer, by the stratospheric price of “pay what you want”, a typography which evil goal is to become the most used informal font on the planet. Even more than the Comic Sans!

The computer fonts are tiny pieces of software, and the OpenType format allows adding «advanced typographical features». The Fonteys has some of these cool features.

Contextual alternates

Depending on the context in which they appear, some letters are replaced by an alternate version. The Fonteys uses this feature to increase the feeling of actual handwritting with different versions of each letter that change randomly.

Small caps

The small caps are capital letters with the size of lower case ones. Many programs fake them and you get some skinny, flimsy, letters that do not fit with the text. As we do not like ugly flimsy letters we have implemented small caps.

A crossbar I for English lettering

Traditionally, when English is written in uppercase the pronoun “I” should have crossbars. The Fonteys evidently had to have that kind of “crossbared I” and we have it in two flavours: As an independent font (FonteysCAPS) or in the normal Fonteys as the “titling alternates” OpenType feature. All your letters will be uppercased, but the actual uppercased “I” will be a crossbared one. Perfect for lettering your comics in capital letters!

I love English

Fractions

We think it’s cool to have some actual fractions in the Fonteys, so we add that feature. So, you know, you could have the true thickness.
