Under The LobsterScope once again asks for Your Help so we can keep going…

…but there’s something in it for you (beyond the daily blog goodies put out for your enjoyment):

Support this blog with $5.00 or more…

…and get “Bill’s Cast O’ Characters,” a great image font,based on authentic turn-of-the-century ornaments in the Barnhart Bros. & Spindler specimen book, e-mailed to you immediately.

So many of you have been following this blog since 2004 that I feel like a member of a huge web community.

I have enjoyed bringing you The Cartoon or Cartoons of the Week, the Quotes, the Political and Arts News, the Blogrolls to the best sites in America and beyond… They are all a joy to put together. Often we get the breaking political stories before you see them anywhere else. And our wide open communication channels with readers can’t be beat.

Well, once again, I need YOUR help to keep it going. I’m hoping you will make a small contribution, by PayPal or credit/debit card, in support of Under The LobsterScope. You’d be amazed at how much $5.00 can do to help me bring more and more to these pages. And it is probably the LOWEST annual subscription fee you will make to any publication… interactive or not.

And for a contribution of $5.00 (or MORE) you will receive a copy of my Picture Font, Bill’s Cast O’ Characters  – one of my very favorites and my most used.

(I send you the True Type versions for both Macs and PCs by email). I regularly sell this font for $29.95. (See the Sample Below.)

You should know, however, that even a contribution of only $1.00 adds to the ability of this unemployed blogger to find things for your benefit, and gives you my heartfelt thanks. By clicking on the DONATE button below, you tell me that Under The LobsterScope makes a difference in your time on the web.

Thanks,

– Bill T.

Your support is more than appreciated at Under The LobsterScope…

In 2004 I started Under The LobsterScope during the election season. For six years I have presented the best liberal-oriented material I could find and my own comments on politics and the arts (and a few other subjects).

I need your support to keep this blog going… when I started I was employed and well-paid, but, as a result of the Bushified economy, I have been more-or-less unemployed for three years. Spending five or six hours a day on a blog is actually an expensive process – when I’m working here, I’m not out hustling freelance jobs or looking for real employment. So I’m asking if you will donate at least $5.00 to Under the LobsterScope. If you do, you get my picture font,Bill’s Universal Symbols (worth $29.95) , absolutely FREE OF CHARGE.

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.).

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.

Remember…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 every time I’ve put up a new Free Font and hope more of you will join in. Previous donors have received two Free Fonts, Bill’s Cast O’Characters and Bill’s Century Marks. Since several have come back again, it is clear what a good deal this is.

So please click on the “Donate” button below:

Thanks,
Bill T.

I’ve set up a new blog for my fonts…

So many of you have asked how to get the picture fonts I offer from time to time for donations to Under The LobsterScope, and to see ones I haven’t shown here, that I have felt the need to set up a blog to show and sell them.

If you are interested (and this is something that graphic artists, designers and folks doing page layouts can really benefit from), go to UTF Type Foundry. There are only  few there now, but I will be adding one or two new samples every day.
