Holly Initials: A Christmas Font

It wouldn’t be the holidays without a special font designed to capture the mood of the season. As a source for something special I went to our library of rare books on type and calligraphy and found a rare book on calligraphy called Real PenWork published in the 1880s by Knowles and Maxim. We originally acquired it as a source for 19th century Spencerian script designs, but it also included some unique decorative lettering, including a set of hand-drawn initials perfect for the holidays with bold letters decorated with holly leaves and berries.

That lettering became the basis of the Holly Initials font which we released just in time for Christmas in 2010.  And now we’re revisiting it for the holidays again. So now, if you want to deck the halls you can really do it in style with a great thematically appropriate font.

You can download and try the demo version of Holly Initials, in TrueType format for Mac or PC. You can also order the full version of Holly Initials online for immediate download: BUY IT NOW.
