It's been a while since we did a new Gothic style font, so we delved into the archives and found some old rubbings and photos of monumental brasses from British tombs of the 12th and 13th centuries. These formed the basis of our Monumental Gothic font. The sources included famous monuments like the tomb of Richard II and less well known inscriptions with similar style lettering. The rubbings were made by Dave Nalle in the 1970s (when they still let you have accessthe the brasses). Monumental Gothic includes some alternate characters, plus upper and lower case characters, numbers and a selection of very interesting decorative emblems to complement the text.

Our recent polling discovered a lot of interest in more antique script fonts, so we felt obliged to provide one. Caswallon is loosely based on samples of 17th century text script. It features a decorative upper case character set with clean, basic lower case letters plus some bonus decorative ornaments to add flair to any design. Caswallon goes very well with antique text styles, particularly Caslon and Jenson derivatives, including our True Golden and Treglonou fonts.

We wanted to make an ultra-thin, tall font with a rough, hand-drawn look and ended up with more than we bargained for. To get the font we wanted we started by developing a source font for the basic letter shapes and we ended up with a whole bunch of variations of the basic style. Thus was born the new Ducatus family of fonts, starting with Ducatus Light which developed into the Medium and Heavy versions, and the Medium weight was ultimately used as the basis for the Ducatus Rough font, which was the goal of the project in the first place. Ducatus Rough was created by modifying Ducatus Medium in Photoshop using Gallery Effects and several other filter packages, and then redoing the outlines from scratch in Fontographer. A lot of work, but the result is just what we wanted. Ducatus Rough is the new featured font. To try out the demo version for free, just click here for either WINDOWS or MacOS .

For our mdern/futuristic fonts collection we wanted something truly science fictional, so Dave Nalle designed the Alecto font, an original design with a futuristic look, but some echoes of the type designs and lettering of the Arts & Crafts period.

uchow was developed from a hand lettered storybook title by Willy Pogany. It's designed to give the feel of the far east, with character shapes reminiscent of oriental brush lettering.

Hesperides is based on samples of Colonial period calligraphy. Rather than being directly derived from any one sample, some common characteristics have been emphasized to give it a more coherent and distinctive look, with the accentuated single-looped strokes on many of the characters suggesting a fully flourished style, but showing a bit of restraint. The ultimate effect is really striking, in the tradition of our Queensland and Allegheny fonts, but even more distinctive.

I had a chat recently with a customer who is a big fan of lettering from the psychedelic poster era - the kind of lettering we've made into fonts in our Psychedelic Fonts collection. The discussion got me thinking about poster lettering we hadn't yet made into fonts, and a particular sample from a Jimi Hendrix poster I had played around with but never finished making into a font. So I went back to the drawing board and the result is the new Hendrix font. Unlike many of our other Psychedelic fonts which are stripped down to their basic character forms, this font includes the outlines characteristic of a lot of poster lettering from that period. It also includes variant versions of a number of the characters, though these are not included in the demo version.

Interlude originated with some title lettering which we found in an Austrian theatre program from the early 1900s. With some more research we found a similar style called Tradition which was designed by Bernard Naudin and produced by a Parisian type house during the period before World War I. Using those two sources we ultimately produced two variant versions of the font, combining elements of the two sources. Interlude features characters with open areas in the heavier strokes, while Prelude is a solid, more script-like version of the style.

Carmilla is a wicked looking script font which we developed with Halloween in mind.
