Yes, it's true. All good things must come to an end. After December 1st, 2008, the complete Wayfarers PDF will no longer be free to download.

There are several reasons why we are doing this. The primary reason is that the free PDF limits our ability to distribute our print material. That is, a free alternative discourages retailers from stocking non-free versions.

We have enjoyed offering the Wayfarers PDF for free, and nearly 1000 copies have been snatched up in a month's time. For this reason, we are not abruptly shutting off the tap. So, before 12-01-08, by all means download the PDF. Do it twice for good measure! Tell your friends to do the same!

Thanks!

-Jimmy

P.S. Even after 12-01-08 we plan to keep a portion of Wayfarers free to download, so that newcomers can preview the system.

Well, that's it. We've shut off the tap!

It was good fun handing out lots of free PDFs, and it seems about 2000 were downloaded.

For those of you that missed the boat, the PDf is available here.

Cheers!

I think there's a thing that needs to be done. Couldn't find this on the site.

Yeah, I'm putting it together. It's just sleep and my pesky day job.

I'll try to get it up here tonight.
