On April 1, 2023 my last remaining distribution agreement with Monotype ended. It was a moment to reflect on the decades that connected me to Berlin. It was a pleasure to work with FontShop and the FontFont library sure kicked ass in those days. So many brilliant minds, focussed engineers, writers, dedicated designers, marketers and organisers!

As a result there are some changes in the availability, and in some cases name changes as well. This page explains it all. Rest assured, the licenses sold by FontShop, Monotype and MyFonts will continue to be valid, under whatever conditions are spelled out in the original license. However, if you need to change or update such a license, you have to direct your questions to LettError Type.

For now, we’re dusting the old fonts off, and perhaps adding a lick of paint. They will be in the LettError Type foundry soon. If you’re in a hurry, don’t hesitate to drop us a mail.

Monotype LettError Type Available
The LettError typewriter

Part of the FontFont Library, 1991-2023. Strange, right? They do not own the design. But even mentioning the old name as part of a trademark attribution might already be an infraction.


“Neither Confirm Nor Deny”.
We absolutely own the design and we love the badass new name: NCND is a trademark of LettError Type.

Amazing variable
edition here!
FF Zapata LTR Slab Extended

A new, delightfully generic name. This time not motivated by silly trademark machinations. But this typeface has nothing to do with Mexican / American history and its name should not allude to that either.

FF Kosmik LTR Kosmik

FF Beowolf LTR Beowolf

We are working on small updates for these. Nothing grand, just a lick of paint. Look for them in the LettError Type foundry. If you need them now, send a mail!
