Bonnycastle

BonnycastleSir Richard Henry Bonnycastle (1791–1847) was an English officer and military engineer who served in the War of 1812 and ultimately settled in Canada. I stumbled upon copies of some of his charts and maps, became infatuated with the hand-lettered titles—and the result is the eponymous Bonnycastle. The font has a bold weight and an italic style but is intended as a stylish standalone, evocative of its period in history. Bonnycastle might prove most useful as an eye-catching titling face on branding materials, event posters, book covers, presentation graphics, historical illustrations, and the like. OpenType features include true small caps, alternate upper- and lower-case alphabets, dozens of ligatures, contextual and discretionary alternates, lining and old-style figures, many cartographic ornaments, and full support for Central and Eastern European languages.—more than 1,100 glyphs in all. US$39.

Bonsai is very beautiful; the font's antiquity seems to conjure a sweet staleness of old newsprint, somehow.”
—A.T., Ontario, Canada

“Oh! I'm in loooove with [Lamar Pen]! It's lovely, it's organic, it's real, it's got history & tradition. My designs are singing!”
—C.C., Palo Alto CA

“These are fantastic fonts, and I appreciate that your company offers a trial download (minus the "e") so I could sell these fonts to my client.
—L.A., Woodinville WA

“Keep up the fonts! They are some of the best I have seen in 10-plus years of design.”
—M.O., Little Rock AR

—A.L., Los Angeles CA

“Your fonts are gorgeous, and in particular, your handwriting fonts are the best I've ever seen.”
