After some delays, thankfully the book "Fonts in ConTeXt" is now
finally available for immediate ordering.

"Fonts in ConTeXt" describes how to define and use fonts in ConTeXt
MkIV. In this book, for the first time all existing documentation
related to fonts has been combined into a single document. In 128
pages, the reader is guided through everything there is to know about
fonts in ConTeXt MkIV. The earlier chapters deal with the theory behind
the font subsystem of ConTeXt and explain how to use the font switching
macros. The later chapters deal with defining fonts, for both single
(symbolic) fonts and complete typescripts for font families. Finally,
there are chapters on extending the ConTeXT font system and font

"Fonts in ConTeXt" costs 19 euro + p&p, and can be ordered from


Hans and I have decided that there will not be a free PDF version;
ordering a hardcopy is the only way to get this book. Please note
that besides receiving a useful book, you will also be sponsoring
ConTeXt development by doing so!
