Age of Discovery bundle, a dozen pre-1800 fonts

3IP Type Library font


Random Discounted Bundle…

The 3IP Type Library™ consists of 33 typefaces (54 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 »


Douglass Pen font


Random Historical Pen…

Douglass Pen™, inspired by the hand of Frederick Douglass, reflects the boldness and determination of the famous American abolitionist, statesman, and orator. Although lacking the flair of some 1800s scripts, the font’s upright, condensed letterforms keep it impressively legible while remaining true to the period. Comes with contextual ligatures, alternate styles, ink blots, cross-outs—more than 800 glyphs in all. Try it out here »


Diorite font


Random Book Text…

Course, chunky, rugged Diorite reminded its designer of the eponymous igneous rock, a rare, hard mix of rough-textured minerals. The look of this typeface is forthright and declarative, and it will surely stand up under adverse printing conditions. Designed for hard use in the real world, this family consists of Regular, Cursive, Bold, and Cursive Bold styles. 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 »


Sekhmet font


Random Display Face…

Sekhmet, named for the lion-headed war goddess of ancient Egypt, does indeed have a sort of feline, forward-directed energy. Noteworthy are the slight slope of its book-weight Roman and its calligraphic Italic. A multi-use display face, Sekhmet nevertheless also works well in (especially larger) text blocks. A member of our discounted Display Faces bundle. Try it out here »


Pumpkinseed font


Random Modern Handwritten Font…

Our Pumpkinseed family has eight styles, Light, Medium, Heavy, and Black, plus obliques of all four weights. A tidy sort of hand-drawn sans serif, this typeface has a jaunty, angular nature. It’s also got plenty of OpenType features, like true small caps, old-style and lining figures, scads of ligatures, and full Latin support—nearly 800 characters 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 »


Treefrog font


Random Offbeat Font…

There’s nothing quite like Treefrog, which resembles writing made by someone who’s dipped a finger in spilled ink. This celebrated grunge font from the 1990s conjures a sense of whimsy, a flight of fancy. Fittingly, it comes with a series of droll ornaments (fish, chairs, garden tools). Oddly, it also has full Latin support—with more than 500 glyphs in all. A member of our Offbeat Grab Bag bundle. Try it out here »

—P.M., Palatine IL

“Thanks so much for the great service and wonderful typefaces!”
