What's in this difficult to read and pronounce name? An ex libris is a label bearing the owner's name that is pasted usually on the inside cover of a book. My initials are ljb, so I that's how I came to my label: exljbris.
Hope you'll enjoy the free Geotica font I designed as a little gift as much as I hope you will enjoy the year I designed it for. It's called Geotica 2012 and you can download it here.
