ABOUT







Linus Romer

(German or Swiss) creator (aka Fuex) of the free calligraphic font Miama (2009, Open Font Library), based upon the handwriting of his (then, girlfriend) wife. Romer is interested in Latex and mathematical typesetting and designed Miama in the spirit of Zapfino and Scriptina. An updated version, Miama Nueva (for Latin and Cyrillic), was developed in 2014, and published by Open Font Lirary. CTAN link.

In 2014-2017, he created the free Metafont (and also, Opentype and truetype) typeface, Fetamont. This 436-font parametric typeface extends Knuth's roundish elliptical logo font for Metafont. It includes a true "randomize" feature. Additional CTAN link.

In 2017, he developed the free slab serif Funtauna, again basing his glyphs on Metafont.

In 2018, he developed the text typeface Elemaints for Latin and Greek in Metafont.
