So you want to earn a living from font design?

Erik Spiekermann blogs about the epsilonic first payment he got for ITC Officina:

The first cheque came to the unbelievable sum of One Dollar and Nine Cents. The fees for cashing it would have been much higher, so I kept it as an original document. ITC Officina is still a bestseller in that library. And although the license fees are a little higher these days, I certainly couldn’t live from that money.
