3IP Modern Handwritten Fonts Collection font


Random Discounted Bundle…

Our Modern Handwritten Fonts Collection™ brings together six real-looking script typefaces (fifteen fonts among them) that closely simulate a mix of contemporary handwriting styles. Each has hundreds of glyphs, OpenType alternates, and full Latin support. (Marydale adds Greek and Cyrillic alphabets.) Choose this bundle and save 40% off the price of licensing these seven faces separately. View Details »


Emily Austin font


Random Historical Pen…

Our Emily Austin™ font replicates the hand of the indominable Emily Austin (Bryan) Perry, one of the children of Moses Austin, of Austinville, Virginia. Like her famous brother, Stephen F. Austin, she settled in Texas as one of that region’s earliest colonists. In her travels, she wrote many a letter home to her husband—each showing her distinctively compact, legible, cursive hand. Try it out here »


TWT Pavane font


Random Book Text…

Lars Bergquist modeled his TWT Pavane font after Jean Jannon’s Caractères de l’université of 1621—but added adaptations (such as an increased x-height) to serve more modern uses. One of his two Garamond-style serifs (the other being Sarabande), this two-style family yet remains more in keeping with the French Renaissance look. A member of our discounted Book Texts bundle. Try it out here »


Bonnycastle font


Random Old Map Font…

The eponymous Bonnycastle™ replicates the bold, italic hand-lettering on the charts and maps of Sir Richard Henry Bonnycastle (1791–1847), an English officer and military engineer who served in the War of 1812 and settled in Canada. Comes with small caps, bunches of ligatures, stylistic alternates, and full Latin support. A member of both our Old Map Fonts Collection and Display Faces CollectionTry it out here »


Corsiva Italica 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 »


Speed Bump font


Random Offbeat Font…

Speed Bump does have upper- and lowercase Latin alphabets, but its chief appeal might be its vast array of wacky pictures (accessible via OpenType features or a character map utility). Need an apple, book, car, duck, eagle, or fish? They’re all there—plus a couple hundred more. Speed Bump has more than 500 glyphs and full Latin support.
