Last month was a very good one for donations to Under the LobsterScope…

… and I’d like to keep it up for June, if you will give me your much appreciated support. Back when I was an employed guy, the cost of spending time and money on the blog was very easy for me. As a “semi-retired” (read: unemployed thanks to the current economy) guy, just keeping the space going requires careful budgeting.

So I’m asking you to donate at least $5.00 to Under the LobsterScope, and if you do you get Bill’s Universal Symbols (worth $29.95) for FREE.

That’s it. $5.00 or more and I will send you this font (partial sample below) which is not available ANYWHERE ELSE (except, of course, on my UTF Type Foundry site.).

Since 2004 I have been bringing you Under The LobsterScope totally free-of-charge and have avoided advertising or “blog begging” or any of the other methods of scavenging that blog writers are prone to. Unfortunately, this has had to change…just a little… to keep this information for progressives, liberals and others coming.

Even a small donation of $1 or $2 helps (although $5 helps a whole lot more.) The amount is up to you. We accept contributions through PayPal and the credit/debit cards shown below.

All contributors of $5.00 or more receive a copy of my Picture Font, Bill’s Universal Symbols (I send you the versions for both Macs and PCs, plus a handy keyboard chart). As I said, I regularly sell this font for $29.95.

This offer is for a very limited time. Come July, Bill’s Universal Symbols comes off the Free list.

I appreciate those of you who have come on board over the last few days and hope more will join in. And for those of you $5 Plus donors who received our last two Free Fonts, Bill’s Cast O’Characters and Bill’s Century Marks, you know what a good deal this is.

So please click on the “Donate” button below:

Bill T.

(PS… my sincere thanks to Christine Jackman who made a contribution larger than the minimum and said she didn’t need the font. I could sure use more readers like that.)

    Hey Bill,
    The Synetic theatre company opened a brilliant Othello at the Kennedy Center last night. As you know this company has won many awards for their exciting physical theatre style. The “silent” Othello went to the meat of the play and took Yago’s internal battle to extremes by splitting him into three persons. It was amazing. You can see a clip on Synetic web site and more info. I wish you could have seen Kafka’s Metamorphises – it was also a treat.

    • Hey, Kiddo… thanks for the donation… wish we were able to get down there, but we are trying to spend as little as possible right now. Expect an e-mail from me with your font and some notes about CATF.
