3IP Type Library font


Random Discounted Bundle…

The 3IP Type Library™ consists of 34 typefaces (55 fonts in all), most inspired by old and new handwriting, antique texts, and vintage map lettering. (The historical replications are exacting enough to be mistaken for genuine archival materials.) All come with ample OpenType features and wide Latin language support. Buy this collection for one-third the price of licensing its member fonts separately. View Details »


Abigail Adams font


Random Historical Pen…

The eponymous inspiration for Abigail Adams™ carried on a famous epistolary dialog with John, her husband and “Dearest Friend,” for more than forty years. Abigail Adams wrote swiftly and intelligently, if not beautifully, in a hand that somehow perfectly represents late-1700s America—as well as her role as key advisor to the second President of the United States. Try it out here »


New Millennium Sans font


Random Book Text…

New Millennium Sans is one of a group three typefaces that share a common name and design philosophy. This sans-serif member is described by its designer as “a humanist sans in the Optima vein.’ Its letterforms are geometric wonders—fine, slim regular styles and clear, definitive bolds. (The other member of this group are New Millennium and New Millennium Linear.) Try it out here »


Antiquarian Scribe font


Random Old Map Font…

Antiquarian Scribe™ is one of two fonts of ours inspired by an original page I have of Atlas Historique, ou Nouvelle Introduction a l’Histoire, a world atlas published by Henri Abraham Chatelain in the early 1700s. Its slanted hand-lettered characters work well with the bold, upright glyphs of Antiquarian, its sister font. Both full-featured serifs are members of our Old Map Fonts CollectionTry it out here »


Paestum font


Random Display Face…

TWT’ eye-catching Paestum family was inspired by Greek inscriptions of 6th and 5th centuries BCE. (Its name comes from the Latin name for Poseidonia, a former Greek city south of Naples.) Comes with Light, Medium, and Heavy weights, each with upper- and lowercase alphabets, numerals, diacritics, and essential punctuation. Note: Paestum lacks unhistorical glyphs like currency symbols and the @ sign. Try it out here »


Viktorie font


Random Modern Handwritten Font…

Our popular Viktorie handwritten font looks like lettering scribbled down in a hurry. Despite its unchained nature, this lively, capricious font is engaging, energetic, and legible. It’s also got a full complement of OpenType features, among them true small caps, many ligatures, and full Latin support—more than 800 glyphs in all. A member of our Modern Handwritten Fonts CollectionTry it out here »


Attic Antique font


Random Antique Text Font…

Akin to the Century faces, Attic Antique™ has the look of a weathered old serif from a century-old textbook. It’s surprisingly legible at any size, from 12-point text blocks to enormous billboard copy. Comes with roman and italic styles and plenty of OpenType-features, including true small caps, discretionary ligatures, and full Latin support—nearly 900 characters in all. A popular display face since 1993. Try it out here »


Chromosome font


Random Offbeat Font…

Chromosome pretty much exactly replicates the look you get on 1960’s-era labelmaker labels. The font has four styles: Light, Heavy, Reversed Light, and Reversed Heavy. (The latter two knock the text out of whatever color label you specify.) It’s got only uppercase characters, but it does offer support for Central and Eastern European languages. A member of our Offbeat Grab Bag bundle. Try it out here »

—B.P., Marietta OH
