A Font-Conscious Visit to Williamsburg

This week I’ve been taking my lovely 17-year old daughter Caroline on a tour of colleges in the mid-Atlantic states which she’s considering applying to this fall. One of the first which we visited was the College of William and Mary located in historic Colonial Williamsburg, which is an area where fonts from our Colonial Collection have always had a large audience. We’ve sold fonts to area businesses, to the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and to the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, who have used them for various publications and presentation materials.

Among the fonts which seemed to be particularly popular and which we saw in use more than once on books and signs and pamphlets and even in restaurant menus were Allegheny, Boswell, http://www.fontcraft.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=hesperides”>Hesperides and Buccaneer. All excellent choices for a colonial design and very characteristic of the period in which Williamsburg was founded.

There’s a lot to see in Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown and the associated colonial sites, but you can have some of that history for youself with our Colonial Fonts Collection and its selection of antique fonts which hold a bit of the spirit of old Williamsburg.
