Austin Pen font


Random Historical Pen…

Austin Pen™; replicates the penmanship of Texas empresario Stephen F. Austin in his famous 1834 prison diary.

Pressroom font


Random Book Text…

Pressroom, as a modern “legibility face,” is designed to be easy-to-read under even the harshest conditions. Ample x-height, robust serifs, minimalist descenders—but still with its share of grace and allure. This sturdy typeface comes with five styles: Regular, Italic, Bold, Bold Italic, and Headline. An all-purpose serif when you’re looking to make a statement. A member of our discounted Book Texts bundle. Try it out here »


Geographica font


Random Old Map Font…

Geographica™ is a legible serif text-type family modeled after the hand-drawn place names and peripheral narratives on the mid-1700s New World maps of English engraver Thomas Jefferys. Geographica comes with Roman, Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic styles, true small capitals, scores of ligatures, two stylistic alternate titling caps—and has a slew of cartographic ornaments, to boot. Try it out here »


Bucintoro font


Random Display Face…

Bucintoro is Lars Bergquist’s salute to the rotunda blackletter, the Gothic book hand of Italy and Spain in the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries. Named for the state barge of Venice, this font as three weights, each with upper- and lowercase alphabets, numerals, punctuation, and diacritics—but lacks such unhistorical modern characters as currency symbols. A member of our discounted Display Faces bundle. Try it out here »


Oak Street font


Random Modern Handwritten Font…

Fat and sassy Oak Street simulates printing from a felt-tip marker. A heavyweight attention-grabber, this font is nevertheless neat and readable. Might work well for signs, headlines, display text, packaging—even menus. Oak Street’s nearly 800 characters include ligatures, small capitals, and full Latin support. One of six faces in our Modern Handwritten Fonts CollectionTry it out here »


Bonsai font


Random Antique Text Font…

A personal favorite among the text fonts I’ve designed, Bonsai™ is, well, top-heavy. But it’s this very top-heaviness—as if printed with worn or off-center lead type— that gives it a peculiar allure. It’s soft, warm, friendly, legible, accessible. Its roman and true italic styles have plenty of OpenType features, true small capitals, and Latin Plus support. (Note its use in the heads on this website!) 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.
