    I didn’t actually “contribute” this photo to Fonts in Use.

    Among other reasons, there is no font in use. This is hand-painted lettering that is emulating a font.

  2. We include examples of lettering that are clearly derived from a font. These are always tagged to indicate that. The contribution line is indeed a little misleading. We’re thinking about how to reword that to show that it’s imported from Flickr by the app and not a direct contribution. That said, happy to remove this if you’d rather it not be part of the Collection. I found it an amusing bit of near LTypI.
