St. John’s At The Temple of Dendur
Filed under: General
Posted by: site admin @ 12:00 am
Students of “Art in
NY.”  This shot was taken outside the temple of Dendur, a Egyptian style
temple built by Petronius, a Roman governor to Nubia.
Dedicated to Isis & Osiris and local princes, the temple
became a gift to the Met in 1978 when the Aswan dam
was built.

Just when you thought nothing new could be done with a font, a European font designer has developed Ecofont, a font that promises to save on printing supplies by as much as 20% over it’s next best san-serif competitor. Ecofont is ported for Windows & OSX.



Sounds interesting? Want it? Did I mention it is free?
Then go to this link: http://www.ecofont.eu/look_at_ecofont_en.html
