ABOUT







Jeffrey S. Lee

The web site is now located at a charity, Shipbrook Hill Farm in Cheshire, UK. In the 1990s, it had a remarkable high-quality pair of freeware fonts, JSL-Ancient and JSL-AncientItalic. From Jeff's web page at the time: My most ambitious typographical achievement so far has been to re-create an antique roman/italic typeface pair, complete with ligatures and obsolete characters. Basing the fonts on nearly identical typefaces used by two English printers in the mid-to-late 1600s (Edward Jones and J. Redmayne), I strove to create as faithful a reproduction as I could manage. Using standard typeface classification terminology, it is a transitional or Baroque Oldstyle font. He also made JSL-Blackletter, Alien Nations, The Tenctonese Alphabet (a sci-fi face), and Tenctonese Sinescript.
