It is a lovely card, isn't it? (see attached file below...scroll down)

Stefan, it would be great to hear from you, to tell us how you  
created this beautiful card!

 From what Stefan told me, if I remember correctly, I believe he  
takes the photos of the flowers from his own garden, with a digital  
camera. And then the SignWriting itself is written with Stefan's own- 
design of TrueType fonts for SignWriting, called the Woehrmann Fonts.  
You install them in your operating system as True Type, and then use  
specific symbols from the keyboard in a graphics program to then  
capture the perfect vector graphics of the circles etc...

A long time ago, Stefan sent me his True Type fonts, which is most  
generous (thank you, Stefan!), but because I am on a Mac most of the  
time, I could not install the fonts at that time, but maybe now that  
i also own a PC laptop, I can do that now...I look forward to that...

So Stefan, want to tell us about your True Type fonts? How do you go  
about designing them, and writing signs with them?

Val ;-)
