Trinculo Font in Birthmarked Book Series
I know very little about the Birthmarked series of books by Caragh M. O’Brien, except that the trilogy of young adult fantasy novels has lovely covers featuring our Trinculo font integrated rather cleverly into cover designs where it fits very nicely with original artwork. The books featuring Trinculo are Birthmarked, Tortured and Prized. A quick perusal suggests that they might be pretty well written in addition to being aesthetically pleasing, so perhaps you can judge a book by its cover. Trinculo is based on renaissance era calligraphy and can be found in our Renaissance Fonts and Art package.

A great many years ago when working in game publishing I had a real fascination with doing titles in a strong, super-bold font called Bolt Bold. The truth is I rather overused it. In doing some research I find it on more than a dozen different game books I wrote in the early 80s, all quite collectable and out of print today.

Engrossing is one of our earliest fonts, originally released in the early 1990s. It is based on one of the very first examples of printed type in a script style.

It's the time of year when we do a lot of design for political posters and some of those projects need special fonts. On this kind of work we already get a lot of mileage out of fonts like Aventine and Atinson Egyptian, but we needed more diversity and something with a different look. Fonts for campaign posters c[...]
Abdiel originated in 2005 as a custom design for a company logo.

There are many good things about Typecon and many nice things I could say, but instead I find myself seized with a compulsion to recast Typecon like old metal type that's melted down and mold into a new font.
