John Fontalina was born on an interstellar flight, somewhere between Vega and Epsilon Eridani. On that trip, Mrs. Fontalina had been hosting a medium sized party for a few dozen of the family retainers. John arrived somewhere after the first dessert, and spoke his first word, “serif,” before the Sambuca.

Ever since, Mister Fontalina, Mister John Fontalina (or Mister Fonts, as he has been known since 2136) has taken pride in his path, clear only to him. And now, you. He lives in Arizona with his wife, Helvetica, where they raise burrow owls and blog fonts all day long.
