Software available from www.high-logic.com
Based on and inspired by the font "DoubleBack"
CONDITIONS OF USE
1 You can use and distribute this font for free. I created it as a
hobby and out of the goodness of my heart, and all I ask is that
you let me know what you think. Of course, if you honestly like it
and feel it is worth some money then I wouldn't say no to £3/$4 or
so per copy as a gesture of goodwill... Email me at the address
above if you want to make a donation.
2 Do NOT use this font to make graphics for websites. Text is text,
and graphics are graphics. Do not confuse the two.
The only way to use the font on the web is to embed it. This can
be done by converting the font into TrueDoc format, using the free
tools at www.bitstream.com , and then using a style sheet
3 No Warranties of any kind. The font should work on both PC and Mac,
but I stress that I am no fontographer, it's just a project!
4 Read #2 again and make sure you understand it. If you do not agree
to this then please delete the font.
NOTES AND ADVICE
1 Do not use mixed case words. Cases lean either left or right, so it
just looks stupid if you capitalize the first letter of everything
2 Do not overdo it! Titles and headers are more than enough, and it
could get hard to read if there is too much of it
3 Font sizes much above 48pt are not recommended, as it gets blocky
