P22 Cezanne was originally created for the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Upon it’s release it quickly became one of the most popular fonts of the1990’s, and has remained very popular to this day.
Lexicon (designed in 1992 by Bram de Does) is pre-eminently suitable for output on laser and other low-resolution printers and for typesetting in small sizes.
Lexicon is therefore the perfect typeface for use in office correspondence) and applications that require highly economical setting (dictionaries, Bibles, timetables, encyclopedias etc.). Lexicon has been used for example in Van Dale's Het Groot Woordenboek der Nederlandse Taal.
Thesis is a large font superfamily, deisgned in the late 90s by Luc(as) de Groot of LucasFonts. Thesis fonts have become popular and can be seen in various publications or logotypes. The range of weights are designed using de Groot's "interpolation theory".
The fonts include TheSans, a humanist sans-serif similar to Frutiger and Segoe; TheSerif, a slab-serif; TheMix, a slab-serif font lacking some serifs; and just recently, TheAntiqua, a serif font.
Trixie is a distressed monospaced serif typeface created by Dutch type designer, Erik Van Blokland, in 1991 using the inspiration of an old, worn typewriter. Probably the most famous presentation of a single letter is the Trixie capital X used in the title of the popular science fiction television series, "The X-Files".
Since its release in 1991, from “The X-Files” to more recent appearances in "Capote" and "Atonement", FF Trixie has served as the defacto typeface of mystery and intrigue. Although there have been a number of typewriter-like designs, FF Trixie remains the most convincing, and accurate, typewriter font available.

Hans Reichel, 1995-2000
The FF Dax family developed from the idea of combining the clarity of a narrow Futura with a "slightly roman touch". The result is a space-saving but very legible typeface.
Ten years after FF Dax was created, Reichel revised the forms as FF Daxline, designed to be more readable variation for text use.

FF Nexus is built on Martin Majoor's "three typefaces, one form" principle. Three families — a serif, slab serif, and sans — are derived from a single design concept. The monospaced FF Nexus Typewriter plays well with the others, too. This breadth of options, combined with OpenType features (such as built-in small caps, alternate glyphs, and optional swashes) make FF Nexus an extremely versatile type system.
After re-working and expanding OCR-B to include three weights for the FontFont 14 release (FF OCR-F), Pool began working on his second FontFont, the famous DIN Mittelschrift. This face has not only dominated the traffic signs and public buildings in Germany, but with its technical orientation and straightforwardness it has also found many friends internationally. FF DIN has been expanded to a family of five weights. For each weight there is an Alternate cut with old style figures, circular i-dots and full points and oblique terminals on some characters.
About FF Info Text
A complete revision of the original FF Info Text Family. Regular and Caps now work better with the new Italic weights and they all now have standard Adobe encoding and integrated Euro symbols. Some letterforms have been corrected and the widths and kerning have been re-tooled. In addition, there are now two sets of figures (old style and table figures) and Expert Sets with arrows, mathematical symbols, and fractions. Notice: type set in FF Info Text (Update) will flow differently than the same text set in the old FF Info Text.
FF Info Text Italic and Caps Italic are brand new designs by Ole Schäfer as extensions to the Text family.
