[9:30 AM] Nu Sans Font Family Updated

Marty Pfeiffer of Scooter Graphics has updated the Nu Sans font family to version 9.3. The Nu Sans fonts bring sharper printing features to the Nu Sans font family. According to Scooter Graphics:

Version 9.3 is now available in PostScript and TrueType flavors. This version adds Mac OS 9.0 computability. The TrueType Nu Sans uses hand-edited TrueType instructions to increase readability at *all* point sizes. A demo version of Nu Sans is available from:

Nu Sans is inspired by Apple Computer's Espy Sans bitmap font. Espy Sans was going to appear in Copland, but instead we got Charcoal in Mac OS 8.0. Nu Sans brings the most aesthetically pleasing element of that abandoned project to your screen and your printer.

Registered users can select Nu Sans in the Appearance Control Panel after applying a patch.

The Nu Sans font family contains 4 fonts and is available for US$12. You can find more information at the Scooter Graphics web site.
