Geographica Hand, a 1700s map-titling font

Old Map Fonts Collection font


Random Discounted Bundle…

Inspired by actual cartographic materials from the 1600s, 1700s, and 1800s, the seven typefaces in our popular Old Map Fonts Collection™ give you all you need to simulate maps and charts from days gone by. Each hand-drawn alphabet has its own distinctive character, and all seven typefaces (ten fonts total) feature period map ornaments. This bundle saves you 45% off the price of licensing these 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 »


New Millennium Sans font


Random Book Text…

New Millennium Sans is one of a group three typefaces that share a common name and design philosophy. This sans-serif member is described by its designer as “a humanist sans in the Optima vein.’ Its letterforms are geometric wonders—fine, slim regular styles and clear, definitive bolds. (The other member of this group are New Millennium and New Millennium Linear.) 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 »


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 »


Marydale font


Random Modern Handwritten Font…

Marydale has three weights, Regular, Bold, and Black. It also has a particularly personable nature, rather like a chatty best friend. Better yet, it has a set of powerful OpenType features—true small capitals, dozens of ligatures, a less quirky stylistic set, and support for Latin, Greek, and Cyrillic languages. Among our most popular typefaces, and 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 »


Chromosome font


Random Offbeat Font…

Chromosome pretty much exactly replicates the look you get on 1960’s-era labelmaker labels. The font has four styles: Light, Heavy, Reversed Light, and Reversed Heavy. (The latter two knock the text out of whatever color label you specify.) It’s got only uppercase characters, but it does offer support for Central and Eastern European languages. A member of our Offbeat Grab Bag bundle. Try it out here »
