Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.

A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts — it is an almost unorthographic life. One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.

The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her cheek, then she continued her way.

About this font family

On May 2, 2003 Chank Diesel hosted a fontmaking workshop in Sacramento, CA for the area Art Director & Artists Club. Thirteen workshop participants each chipped in a few letters and watched as their glyphs were turned into a font before their very eyes.

Now, a few weeks later, the results of that workshop are available for you to download in the form of Westsac, a perky little Times-influenced free font that will add levity to your layouts while maintaining a traditional Roman style that’s easily accessible to your readers. Like Mister Frisky on ritalin. Or a copy of the New York Times that somebody sat on for a little while.

Westsac is named after WEST SACramento, home to a lady who came up to Chank and started telling him about how she had just decked her husband because she found out he was cheating with another lady and then she asked for a ride back home to her home in West Sac. Yeah, right.
