I’ve always had a secret desire for a penpal, even today. Recently I realized that the internet has replaced penpals, in a good way almost. I have so many long-distance friends that I’m able to communicate with on a daily basis thanks to the internet, and with things like Skype, it doesn’t feel like such a remote friendship. While I may have a nostalgic view of old-fashioned letter-writing, I’m glad I live in an era when modern technology allows me to have friends all over the world. Have any of you guys ever had an old-fashioned, letter-writing penpal, or do you embrace the 21st century’s version of long distance friendships? I want to hear about all your far-flung friends!

The League of Fonts
THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League?
