3IP Antique Text Fonts Collection font


Random Discounted Bundle…

Our Antique Text Fonts Collection™ is a bundle of four typefaces designed from real life source materials from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.

Choose this bundle to save 40% off the price of licensing its member typefaces separately. View Details »


Botanical Scribe font


Random Historical Pen…

Botanical Scribe™ was inspired by the fine, hand-inscribed legends on the early-19th-century floral etchings of Belgian painter Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Because of its slight organic imperfections, it has a warm, accessible feel while remaining elegant enough for formal invitations and the like. 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 »


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 »


Paestum font


Random Display Face…

TWT’ eye-catching Paestum family was inspired by Greek inscriptions of 6th and 5th centuries BCE. (Its name comes from the Latin name for Poseidonia, a former Greek city south of Naples.) Comes with Light, Medium, and Heavy weights, each with upper- and lowercase alphabets, numerals, diacritics, and essential punctuation. Note: Paestum lacks unhistorical glyphs like currency symbols and the @ sign. 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 »


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.
