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 »


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 »


Midnight 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 »


Cedar Street font


Random Modern Handwritten Font…

Cedar Street has the look of neat printing with a ballpoint pen on a porous pad of note paper, such that the strokes have bulbous ends where the ink’ soaked in. Its style is perhaps slightly eccentric, but the overall feel is of legible, casual hand-lettering. This full-featured OpenType font has nearly 800 glyphs, including small caps, plenty of ligatures, and full Latin support. Try it out here »


Castine font


Random Antique Text Font…

Castine™ is named for a small, lovely coastal town in Maine, whose old cemetery has headstones dating back to the late-1700s. The font replicates the work of the tradesman who carved the epitaphs on these old stones, right down to their long, sharp serifs and hand-done unevenness. Comes with roman and italic styles, dozens of ligatures, a series of winged-skull ornaments, and full Latin support. Try it out here »


Treefrog font


Random Offbeat Font…

There’s nothing quite like Treefrog, which resembles writing made by someone who’s dipped a finger in spilled ink. This celebrated grunge font from the 1990s conjures a sense of whimsy, a flight of fancy. Fittingly, it comes with a series of droll ornaments (fish, chairs, garden tools). Oddly, it also has full Latin support—with more than 500 glyphs in all. A member of our Offbeat Grab Bag bundle. Try it out here »
