Geographica Fonts Set font


Random Discounted Bundle…

While diverse, the three fonts in our Geographica Fonts Set™ all arise from the same source materials: the 18th-century British map engravings of Emanuel Bowen and Thomas Jefferys. You’ll find here a handwritten serif, a graceful script, and a four-style modern book text—each with a series of impressive map ornaments and full Latin support. Choose this bundle and save 50% off individual purchases. View Details »


Lamar Pen font


Random Historical Pen…

Bold and adventurous but with a hint of culture, Lamar Pen™ reflects the personality of the man whose handwriting inspired it. Mirabeau B. Lamar was a poet, orator, traveler, military man, and a celebrated Texan of the 1830s and ’40s. Unlike Sam Houston, alas, he was not a friend of Texas’s Native American tribes—but there’s no denying he had fine cursive script. Among our most popular old pen fonts. Try it out here »


Geographica font


Random Book Text…

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 »


Antiquarian Scribe font


Random Old Map Font…

Antiquarian Scribe™ is one of two fonts of ours inspired by an original page I have of Atlas Historique, ou Nouvelle Introduction a l’Histoire, a world atlas published by Henri Abraham Chatelain in the early 1700s. Its slanted hand-lettered characters work well with the bold, upright glyphs of Antiquarian, its sister font. Both full-featured serifs are members of our Old Map Fonts CollectionTry it out here »


Bonnycastle font


Random Display Face…

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 »


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. A member of our Offbeat Grab Bag bundle. Try it out here »
