Version 3.30 – 4 February 2016

* Minor updates to reflect proper comic style

album_thirty-sevenNamed after the “last good year” of the classic pulp period, Thirty-Seven is a strong, bold art-deco font with a thick vertical stroke and thinner secondary strokes. Capital letters have a minor decorative ‘cut’ in the bold stroke as well, giving it more of the marquee look. Includes full alphabet, numerals, extended punctuation, and Euro.  Available in regular and italic styles.

Software Update

I know, this isn’t a particularly impressive update for the site’s users, but it’s one that’s been overdue. I took the day to manually update the site’s software, due to some glitch in WordPress’s auto-update features. This has been done, and everything seems to be working. Hopefully I’ll have something more impressive for you in a couple of days!

Thanks, everyone, for their patience.
