ABOUT







Eccentrifuge [John Butler]

The Eccentrifuge Blackletter Directory aims to be an exhaustive online reference for all commercially available blackletter fonts (but he only deals with commercial type). Run by John Butler of North Carolina (he was in Atlanta, GA). John Butler designed the Butler Antiqua family (2002) in the style of Ruzicka and Dwiggins. Eccentrifuge assists type designers in navigating and managing the complexity of OpenType feature programming, Euro conversion, character encoding and Unicode, Python scripting, bitmap embedding, and to a certain extent, internationalization. It also specializes in developing connected OpenType font designs at a level of fluidity previously unavailable, allowing your designs to achieve a true handwritten look. Jobs include Emigre's Mrs. Eaves OpenType, an OpenType version of Erik Van Blokland's Kosmik, and Barchowsky Fluent Hand OpenType.
