Texas Hero font


Random Historical Pen…

Designed in 1994, Texas Hero™ was the first font intended to accurately reproduce the look of antique handwriting, warts and all—in particular, the legible (for its time) cursive script of a Texan named Thomas Jefferson Rusk, one of the state’s first two U.S. Senators (the other being Sam Houston). The current release has more than 500 glyphs and is chock-full of OpenType features. 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 font


Random Old Map Font…

Antiquarian™ evokes the rugged hand-lettered legends on 300-year old maps—specifically the illustrations in Henri Abraham Chatelain’s Atlas Historique, published in Amsterdam in the early 1700s. The font features true small capitals, alternate uppercases, scores of ligatures, a series of period cartographic ornaments, and support for Greek and Latin alphabets—more than 1,000 glyphs in all. Try it out here »


Midnight font


Random Display Face…

Midnight is an ornamental typeface with a simple raison d’être: to simulate the look of the lettering on neon signs. Naturally, its two styles—Light and Bright—work best when knocked out of a dark background, but the font’s look is such that its usefulness is not limited to illustrations of a downtoan city street at night. An ideal addition to any designer’s display-font toolbox. Try it out here »


Pumpkinseed font


Random Modern Handwritten Font…

Our Pumpkinseed family has eight styles, Light, Medium, Heavy, and Black, plus obliques of all four weights. A tidy sort of hand-drawn sans serif, this typeface has a jaunty, angular nature. It’s also got plenty of OpenType features, like true small caps, old-style and lining figures, scads of ligatures, and full Latin support—nearly 800 characters in all. A member of 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 »


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.
