Art Nouveau Font Collection
Our Art Nouveau collection is one of our most impressive font packages. It brings together all of our best fonts based on Art Nouveau period designs, an area in which we’ve specialized since our earliest releases. It’s an extensive collection, with over 30 unique fonts, including text, title faces and even decorative initials. Art Nouveau may be celebrating its 100th anniversary, but the style holds up remarkably well, and Art Nouveau fonts are both artistic and functional.
Many of these fonts originated in Art Nouveau period magazines like Munchner Jugend, The Studio and Yellow Book or in period advertising, poster or sign designs. The collection includes some of the most recognizable styles of the period (Ariosto, Munich, Pantagruel) as well as unique faces based on rare hand lettering (Walhal, Beauvoir, Phaeton).
The Art Nouveau collection has recently been expanded with the addition of new fonts like Boetia, Belgravia and Jugendstil Kunsthand, plus a bonus collection of frames and borders based on designs from magazines and books of the period. Altogether it makes the ultimate resource for Art Nouveau style design.
This recently updated edition of the Art Nouveau collection is normally $99 but it is currently available at a special price of only $89. It comes with both TrueType and Postscript fonts for either the MacOS or Windows. You can order it by calling 1-512-656-8011 or just CLICK HERE to order it online and get it delivered by email or on CD.
We also offer a special Art Nouveau super-package which includes our Art Nouveau fonts collection, our Jugendstil (click for details) font and art collection and our Alphons Mucha (click for details) collections, to cover the full range of Art Nouveau type, art and design. Purchased individually these would have a total value of $187, but you can get the combination package on CD for only $139. Just CLICK HERE
To get a feel for how Art Nouveau fonts look, here’s a trial version of Norumbega for you to play around with. You may recognize this font because it has been prominently featured in the cover designs for a series of books by the author Mercedes Lackey. The full version of Norumbega is in the package, but this version has the basic character set for you to play around with. Just click on the image below to download the demo.
New Font: BigBlok
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.
Treadway is a new, original design in the tradition of futuristic advertising scripts of the mid-20th century, inspired by fonts like Kaufmann and Gillies, but with a stronger, more clearly defined look, stripped down to its most stylized essentials for a very powerful visual impact. It is the kind of type you'[...]

It has taken a lot of hours of development, but we finally have our promised Walter Crane Initials font. Or should I say FOUR fonts, because in the process of developing the font it turned out that we ended up with more than we bargained for. One reason that there are four fonts is that there was so[...]

When I was a kid I wasn't allowed to buy comic books, so when I began to earn some money of my own as a young teen, I hit that market right at the peak of the 1970s boom in alternative large-format comics which were much more salacious - with more gore and sex - than the comics I would have read as a kid. I wen[...]

Too often when looking at antique books we concentrate on the contents and ignore the covers, but some book covers are artworks in their own right and cannot be ignored, this is even more true with eBooks which are more and more causing content to be divorced from packaging.
