Classic Font: Boswell

We’ve brought back a lot of classic fonts for a second look, but few of them are as interesting as Boswell, our classic regency-period text font based on extensive samples of type from the first edition of Boswell’s Corsica, a very rare book which we happen to have in our library and from which we developed an accurate typeface which includes not only a full multi-lingual character set, custom bold and italic, but also a large and varied set of alternate characters in various degrees of decay and distress. If you want to reproduce the look of antique typesetting, the Boswell font will exceed all of your expectations.

Boswell was first released in 1994. Since then it has been revised and expanded several times with new characters and refinements added. It is currently also one of the featured fonts in our Colonial package in addition to being available as a solo font set.

You can download and try the demo version of Boswell in TrueType format for Mac or PC. The full version of the font is available from our ordering site.
