About Especial Kay

Basically, Mary Kay is probably the most unusual person I've ever met. She wrote a book called, "The Search for Callahan's--an Artist's Bi-costal Diary." I helped her with the typesetting of the book (No, Mary Kay, press SHIFT-Apple-K!!!--uh, I mean, go up to "Element" on the menu bar!) and as I read through one of the semi-final versions, I noticed that she had some pages that were hand-written. The letters I saw were really strange--no one in their right mind writes this way! But the more I looked at it, the more enchanted I became. So I created a font called "Especial Kay-Angry" and showed it to her. She thought I was crazy.

So I created another font--this time, begging for samples of her lower case letters as well as upper case. Along came the font you now have in your computer, "Especial Kay."

I hope that you enjoy using these fonts as much as I enjoyed designing them for you! Send me your coments at or
