  2. Geographica


    **Thomas Jefferys** (ca. 1710–1771) was the best-known map engraver in 18th-century England, chiefly because he won (and hyped) the title “Geographer to King George III.” Jefferys was more an engraver/publisher than a geographer, really, since he mostly relied on the cartographic materials of others. Still, his maps of the North American colonies were well known. **Geographica** is a four-style serif text-type family modeled after the neat hand-lettered place names and peripheral text on Jefferys’s maps. This legible typeface combines a hand-drawn warmth with a distinctly historical flair. With its long serifs and ample x-height, Geographica will add classic elegance to long blocks of text or display type, whether on paper or screen. OpenType features include small capitals and two stylistic sets of titling caps. *Comes with a slew of unique cartographic ornaments, and offers full support for Central and Eastern European languages—more than 1,200 glyphs in all.*

The punch cutter was the Dutch famous Kristoffel Van Dijk. In our two styles (Normal & Italic), font faces, kernings and spaces are scrupulously the same as in the original. This Pro font covers Western, Eastern and Central European languages (including Celtic), Baltic and Turkish, with standard and “long s” ligatures in each of the two styles. The Roman (Normal) style is containing a U stylistic alternate, and the Italique style A. 404 Glyphs in each of the two styles (Normal +Italic), including OpenType variants.

  4. 1786 GLC Fournier Set OTF

    1786 GLC Fournier Set OTF

    This family (six files) was created inspired from numerous documents and books printed in Paris during the end of the 1700s. Mainly, documents printed by P.G. Simon & N.H. Nyon, "Printers of the parliament" were used for the Normal and italic styles and "Caps". "Titling" characters were coming from a collection of hymns printed by Nicolas Chapart. In France these Fournier's characters, as Baskerville's in Great Britain, were the most often in use in the late 1700's, just before - and announcing - the Didot's. This font supports strong enlargements, specially the capitals of "Caps" file and "Titling", remaining very smart, elegant and fine.

  6. Attic Antique Roman

    Attic Antique Roman

    Years ago, while flipping through a friend’s old hardbound collection of John Burroughs nature essays, I thought it’d be fun to see if I could create a typeface with the same uneven, decayed look to it. I picked and chose from among the printed characters, then hand-traced their shapes painstakingly, warts and all. What I ended up with is this surprisingly legible weathered serif akin to the late-1800s Century faces. --- *This product is the roman style only.* Has more than 800 glyphs—including true small caps, scores of ligatures, lining and old-style figures, and a few floral (and other) ornaments, just for grins.

  13. 1546 Poliphile Set OTF

    1546 Poliphile Set OTF

    This family (Two styles) was inspired from the French edition of "Hypnerotomachie de Poliphile" ( " The Strife of Love in a Dream ")( Attributed to Francesco Colonna, 1467) printed in 1546 in Paris by Jacques Kerver. He was using a Garamond set, including two styles : Normal and Italic ("Normal" carved by Claude Garamond, "Italic" we don't know. It was an Italic pattern very often in use in Paris on these years). We have thoughtlessly modified the slant angle of the Capitals used with Italics because the Normal capitals were used in both styles in the original. The present font is containing scrupulously all of the specific latin abbreviations and ligatures used in this edition (with a few differences between the two styles). Added are the accented characters and a few others not in use in this early period of printing.

  14. Turquoise


    Many calligraphers agree that Roman Capitals is one of the most beautiful yet difficult hands to master. Its beauty lies in its simplicity of form and structure, yet understanding and applying these skillfully can take years of mindful practice. My goal was to design Roman Capitals that were smoothly designed with a brush, not carved. The main concept was based on the fundamental strokes that are commonly studied when you practice Roman letters. That’s why many Serifs have these unfinished terminal serifs. I created the Turquoise typeface based on my Capitalis Romana practice with a with flexible broad edged brush and gouache. During the lowercase process I was still following Foundational calligraphy with a flat brush. My Turquoise Capitals were then adjusted and redesigned at the Tipobrda calligraphy workshop in Slovenia. Turquoise contains small caps, many discretionary ligatures, ornaments, swashes as well as several brushy nature-inspired ornaments, accessible via Opentype. Ideally suited for headlines or body text in advertising, packaging and visual identities, its delicate shapes, curves and endings give projects a harmonious elegance and stylistic feel in unique Turquoise style. My inspiration for this font showcases is one of the richest islands in the Mediterranean, the place where my parents are from, Sicily. This southern Italian region has so many unique spots: Stromboli, part of the Aeolian Islands and the Pelagie Islands, is one of my favorite places in Sicily. The pictures I used were taken there this year. So enjoy the sun, the serifs, the water and its Turquoise colors. The brush is mighter than the sword. *702 Glyphs Ligatures, icons, alternates and discretionary ligatures.* List of glyphs: https://www.dropbox.com/s/gh8sfzfo8afytp9/Turquoise-2017-glyphs.pdf?dl=0 You will NEED A GLYPHS PANEL to access the alternates Take a look at the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-Z9qHZbY9I --- Combine Turquoise with: **Nautica** http://bit.ly/2ptKrTn **Respect** http://bit.ly/2oEa9US **Timberline** http://bit.ly/2pqrALB

    1533 GLC Augereau PRO OTF

    Antoine Augereau (circa 1485-1534)was a punchcutter before to be a printer in Paris, one of the first French who engraved roman letters, when the French printers were mostly using blackletters. He began to work for Robert Estienne, one the first Parisian printer to use this types. He is the principal punchcutter who create the Garalde type, perfected by Claude Garamond, his pupil. Our font is inspired from one of his three roman typeface : the "Gros Romain" (±16 Pts) size, used in 1533 to print "Le miroir de l'âme...", a religious poetical compilation by Marguerite de Navarre, sister of the French king François the first. It seems that Augereau had also engraved italic styles, but there is not any certainty about. Our "1689 GLC Garamond Pro" italic style may be used without anachronism. The alphabet, with his complete small caps collection, is covering all West, East and Central European languages (including Baltic and Celtic) and Turkish.
