  1. Ambroise is a great take on Bodoni. Huge fan of Le Monde too.

  2. I just got a “Jan Middendorp” contribution from MyFonts.
    The Creative Character is Jean-Francois.

  3. This is the text as released by MyFonts
    “For almost ten years, I was radically against working with distributors, in order to have total control over my work. I changed my attitude a couple of years ago. After many discussions with people in the business, I’ve become more open. I’m distributing through FontShop and I’m making more and more stuff available through MyFonts.”
    So non-exclusive, I would say.

  4. Henk, please check the date. This entry is two years old.

    Back then FontShop was indeed exclusive reseller for Porchez Typofonderie. Our readers are definitely smart enough to realise that, yes, things do change. ;)

  5. Sorry Yves,
    I did not see that date!
    So at least one of your readers was not smart enough! :-)
