We have done a number of fonts based on unique, historic movie titles. The most well known and widely circulated is our Captain Kidd font, but we have another historic movie font based on an even more famous movie, our Locksley font which comes from the titles of the Adventures of Robin Hood the black and white classic starring Errol Flynn.
You can see the original titles from the movie to the left and our font in the other samples on this page. The font is very true to the basic character design of the movie titles. Strangely, none of the many movie posters for Robin Hood use the same style of lettering.
It has an authentic medieval look, though the combination of elements of gothic and black letter styles is not strictly historical and certainly not right for the period in which the movie is set. However it does work on a title card and looks pretty good in other applications as well.
This is a new and revised version of Locksley, with the weight and proportions of the characters significantly adjusted and a number of new characters added.
