The fascination with letterpress fonts continues, and one of the key element of any letterpress design is a heavy, bold block font. To fill that need we developed Caelian from samples we found in letterpress posters. To preserve the spirit of letterpress we created both a clean regular version and a rough version with two different variants of each character. There’s no lowercase, but a custom set of small caps which goes with the regular character set.

You can download and try the demo version of Caelian, which includes characters from all the different sets, in TrueType format for Mac or PC. It includes a mix of characters from the different variants of the font. You can also order the full set with both fonts online for immediate download: BUY IT NOW.
