A TrueType Font by S. John Ross

Cumberland Games & Diversions

Strawberry-rhubarb preserves, apple butter, and a creamy potato and macaroni soup are my three favorite food-related memories from early childhood, and all three were the work of Etta Collins, my great-grandmother. Something about the look of this month's font got me thinking of those days.

Fans of the Fontworks will no doubt notice that this is the second font I've made with a "jar of preserves" motif. Some kind of nostalgic rebellion against being diabetic, maybe? I have no idea. This one lacks the mad charm of its predecessor, but has a saner, calmer charm all its own.

Apple Butter is a full-keyboard set with a few selected extended characters (like smart quotes, dashes and the all-important needed for words like Pokthulhu and Clich). This new, revised version 2.0 adds a Euro symbol and some more accents (someday, I'll get around to adding them all). Enjoy!

Version 2.0This font is the work of S. John Ross, a one-mand band punching out warm hand-drawn fonts, funky stress-fonts, and oddball fonts like HexPaper and Sparks for more than a decade, now.
