This is a high-quality original collection of bitmap fonts for Macintosh from one half of what would become Casady & Greene. It was followed later by Fluent Laser Fonts.

"Fluent Fonts has a typestyle for every Macintosh user, from the serious professional to the playful amateur. Typefaces are designed for maximum-quality printing on either the ImageWriter I or II.

Two 800K disks full of fonts with:

…symbols for astronomy, biology, chemistry, meteorology, and advanced mathematics.

…easy-to-read text fonts for word processing in many languages. There are separate Czech, Polish, Russian & Ukrainian fonts. Most fonts support European languages.

…small fonts for forms and tight spaces.

…large and decorative display fonts for graphic arts, newsletters, awards & announcements.

…useful fonts for programmers.

…image and border fonts for enhancing your documents.

Fluent Fonts install easily—with the included Font/DA Mover—and can be used in any program with a font menu." --description from the packaging

Casady & Greene were my all-time favourite Mac software publisher. I believe they did my favourite action game (Sky Shadow) as well!!

I would really like to hear from someone involved in making this or any other Casady & Greene software. Stories and anecdotes from those days really float my boat.
