New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Thought you all might be interested in knowing that FF (Fontfont) faces are now available at MyFonts:
How does the contract work when submitting your fonts? What rights do they have? Such as, can they manually hint them or does it depend on the foundry/type designer?
The first offering of the MyFonts Newsletter under the ownership of Monotype has not chosen to look at one of the thousand or so independent designers contributing to their site, but instead they have chosen to highlight one of their own designers - Steve Matteson.
A disappointing first step by the new owners.

Hey everyone, I'd like to introduce a fresh new face from Niramekko. Plau is the name and it's available at MyFonts: http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/niramekko/plau/
Futurist typeface from the programming era, Plau is a sans-serif with rounded corner personality and interestingly deliberate lettershapes. Comfortable in headlines, reads surprisingly well in longer passages of text.
Also looks quite interesting on the screen.
Hope you guys like it.
''Whimsical Musical'' is a vivid hand drawn font with 405 alternate letters, all caps. Developed from a lighthearted drawing in my sketchbook saying the German word MUSIK cheerfully over and over in twenty vivid variations. Next to it was the date "6th April 2007." This initial idea has burst into a font that is full of surprises and whimsical turns. It is dynamically suggestive, like music, and humorously chaotic, as in Dada.
I wake up this morning to find Tomi looking at me from my inbox! CONGRATULATIONS!
