eborders48If you liked our Elizabethan Fonts you need some historic borders to go with them and we have just the thing.

In the 1920s Douglas C. McMurtrie published a great collection of historic woodcut borders dating from the 15th century to the 19th century. It includes elaborate decorative pieces in a number of styles and includes great examples by William Morris and Walter Crane among others.

We have collected all of the borders in McMurtrie’s book and put them together into a single package with over 50 borders plus assorted emblems and decorations, all in high resolution and digitally corrected to make them easy to use in your projects, with an appropriate reprint license.

You can see all of the borders in the video below and you can ORDER them for just $39 as our Historic Borders Collection.
