Austin Pen font


Random Historical Pen…

Austin Pen™; replicates the penmanship of Texas empresario Stephen F. Austin in his famous 1834 prison diary. It comes with both a fine, legible regular style and a unique bold weight that looks like handwriting made with an over-inked pen. Comes with hundreds of ligatures and other OpenType alternates, ink blots and cross-outs, an uppercase hand-lettered alphabet, and full Latin support. Try it out here »


New Millennium font


Random Book Text…

New Millennium is a masterful modern typeface. Its look is both frank and stylish, and its feel is clean and clear. It’s also something of a novelty, in that its five styles include both serifs and sans-serifs: its Regular and Italic are flat-serifed fonts, yet their bold counterparts are sans (identical to those of New Millennium Sans). Add to these a heavy Headline serif, and you’ve got a true multi-purpose type tool. 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 »


Bonnycastle 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 »


Professor font


Random Modern Handwritten Font…

Professor replicates the cursive script of an actual college professor (the designer’s late-father), who had the kind of plain modern hand schoolkids used to see on a blackboard. Replete with contextual ligatures, this font was designed to fool casual readers into thinking they’re scanning real handwriting. Has nearly 600 glyphs and full Latin support. 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. A member of our Offbeat Grab Bag bundle. Try it out here »

Bonsai is very beautiful; the font's antiquity seems to conjure a sweet staleness of old newsprint, somehow.”
