Typography activists

Garcia fonts & co. was an open project that was made possible by contributions from everyone who collaborated actively with their personal items*.
So, the common surname «Garcia» (as «Smith» in England or «Dupont» in France) appears with the clear intention to group all contributors.
How anyone could join the crew and get the fonts?

For the last year and a half I have been in Maastricht, Netherlands eating cheese and making my research at the Jan van Eyck Akademie.
