2012 Font and Art Sampler
At the end of every year we put together a special sampler package of releases from that year. This year our 2012 Font and Art Sampler has a large and outstanding collection selected from the many releases we’ve had during the year. It’s the best of the year in one compact package.
It starts with a special set of five fonts, including two of our regular new releases, Cantoria and Romark plus three additional fonts which were only released in special packages and were not even available as demos, Art Deco Borders, Facial Topiary and Posada Spur. All five of these fonts are included in complete fully registered versions.
The package also includes the demo versions of the 12 additional new fonts we released in 2012, from Barnabas to Treadway . All of the demo fonts are in TrueType format for MacOS and Windows and the full fonts also include the files for PostScript users. It’s a remarkably varied assortment of original font designs.
The package also includes a very large selection of exceptional illustrations and decorative borders from a variety of sources, sampling everything we released this year. It includes a total of 70 pieces from artists like Walter Crane, W. H. Robinson, Katherine Cameron and Owen Jones. See the slideshow tool below to see samples of the wide assortment of images.
Best of all, because this is a sampler package it’s available at the uniquely low promotional price of just $11.95 and you can order and download it online from our ONLINE STORE.

A great many years ago when working in game publishing I had a real fascination with doing titles in a strong, super-bold font called Bolt Bold. The truth is I rather overused it. In doing some research I find it on more than a dozen different game books I wrote in the early 80s, all quite collectable and out of print today.
I was out to dinner for my daughter's birthday and we went to a nice restaurant in downtown Austin called Boticelli's. Much to my surprise the logo of the restaurant was strangely familiar. It was in our Sprite font, shown to the right. In this new edition we have improved the kerning and spacing, expanded alt[...]

Too many years ago to count, I was lucky enough to attend St. Albans School in Washington, DC.

It's a school with a lo[...]
