TWT New Millennium Series font


Random Discounted Bundle…

Lars Bergquist’s New Millennium Series™ is a book-text marvel. It has three exceptional typefaces (with 13 styles among them) that share a common design philosophy: New Millennium (a modern serif), New Millennium Sans (a humanist sans), and New Millennium Linear (a geometric monotone). Choose this bundle to save nearly 50% off licensing the faces separately. View Details »


Military Scribe font


Random Historical Pen…

Military Scribe™ is modeled after the compact, legible script on the mid- to late-1770s muster rolls of the 10th Regiment of Foot, a British military unit that saw action at the outset of the American Revolution in the Battle of Lexington and Concord as well as Bunker Hill. Comes with scores of OpenType features, including historical ligatures, contextual alternates, and ink blots—more than 1,000 characters in all. 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.

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 »


Paestum 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 »


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 »


Broadsheet font


Random Antique Text Font…

Broadsheet™ is a two-style family that simulates the type on printed matter from the Colonial American period. Modeled after the text on actual 18th-century broadsides, this font gives you more double-s ligatures than you can dream of. Comes with true small caps, contextual and discretionary alternates, genuine period printer’s flourishes, and full Latin support. 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. A member of our Offbeat Grab Bag bundle. Try it out here »
