No Commercial Licence is available for this font, it was created from contributions to the Mail Art Typeface project in 2004 and is free for all uses.

From the end of 2003, I sent out 150 or so snailmail and email invitations to mailartists whose graphic design flair led me to hope that they would each be keen to contribute a single character for a typeface, MAILART. In addition, I placed an invitation in the fonts section of my website (www.keithbates.co.uk) and also asked fellow mailartists to recommend another participant if they wished.

It didn’t take long for the creative juices to flow, the ten digits arrived almost immediately - perhaps numbers are treated with greater urgency than letters? - and I began to receive an eclectic array of freeform typography. Thankfully, most people kept more or less to the brief, but a few mailartists were so free in their interpretation that one or two characters were illegible and I had to politely request some reworking. Most mailartists have cheerfully modified their ideas in pursuit of readability and consistency.

I have also permitted myself the luxury of making minor alterations in the interests of clarity and greater consistency- for instance in altering some proportions to make the x height and cap height of letters more uniform. I have also emboldened some characters that seemed incongruously thin. I hope no-one feels that I have trodden on their creative toes!

Thank you to all participants, and special thanks to those mailartists who stepped in at short notice to fill last minute gaps! I hope you agree that the end result possesses a fragmentary unity worthy of our efforts and that you will be keen to use this display font for titles, headings and anywhere that needs un petit peu of postal punkiness.
