Attic Antique

Attic AntiqueFlipping through a friend’s old hardbound collection of John Burroughs nature essays one day, I thought it’d be fun to see if I could create a typeface with the same uneven, imperfect look to it. I picked and chose among various printed characters, enlarged them somewhat with an old photocopier, scanned and hand-rendered each glyph—then topped things off with a couple goofy ornaments, just for the heck of it. What I ended up with was a surprisingly legible weathered serif akin to the Century faces. The family has roman and true italic styles. OpenType features include true small capitals, old-style and lining figures, numerous ligatures, and full Latin support. US$49.

KIND WORDS:

“[American Scribe] may be the greatest font ever! Everyone on the planet should have it!”
—M.P., Boulder CO

“The fonts you offer are quite unique and beautifully done.... Your site and ecommerce process was also a pleasure to view and to use.”
—R.M., Newbury NH

“Thanks so much for the great service and wonderful typefaces!”
—S.F., Evanston IL

“Well done on preserving the old ways of writing—they wrote and spoke so much nicer than we do now.”
—A.K., Adelaide, S. Australia

Bonsai is very beautiful; the font's antiquity seems to conjure a sweet staleness of old newsprint, somehow.”
—A.T., Ontario, Canada

“I'm a collector of 19th century antiques and photographs, and like to make labels and scrapbooks using fonts that fit the period of my items. I've even tried to learn the penmanship myself using dip pens... your fonts will make it so much easier!”
—P.M., Palatine IL

“All [these] typefaces are wonderful, romantic creative fonts which no serious designer could possibly overlook.”
—G.H., London, England
