New Font: Montgisard

There are certain design concepts which deserve more than one exploration. One of those is the combination of gothic elements with more more traditional Roman-style lettering. Classic font designer and calligrapher Rudolph Koch liked the idea as demonstrated in our Koch Gothic font. The idea of combining Roman capitals with a gothic lowercase is the basis of our new Montgisard font, which has a rough calligraphic look, unusual capitals with cruciform embellishments and a classic gothic lowercase. The result is interesting and unusual looking – excellent for titles and poster applications.

You can download and try the demo version of Montgisard 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 version online for immediate download: BUY IT NOW.
