New Font: Atkinson Boomtown

Boomtown is based on hand lettering by early 20th century sign artist Frank Atkinson. It’s a classic wild west style font with super wide and bold look. It’s in the tradition of some of our other “circus” style fonts like Plowright and Atkinson Eccentric — perfect for poster and sign design. Although the source characters were hand lettered, we went through very carefully while developing the digital outlines to make sure that the characters are as regular in weight and shape as possible. The end result is very clean looking, but still has a lot of personality.

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