Antiquarian Scribe™

Henri Abraham Chatelain was a cartographer and publisher of the famous Atlas Historique, ou Nouvelle Introduction a l’Histoire, a world atlas released between 1705 and 1732 in Amsterdam. A few years ago, at an antique book shop in London, I bought a page from Chatelain’s atlas—a page covering the Near East, India, the Indian Ocean—that had a particularly alluring, oblique handlettering style. The text is in French, which gave me plenty of samples of diacritics and accented characters. The overall effect is neat and legible, with a distinctly historical flair. Antiquarian Scribe is a full-featured font* that works well with Antiquarian. $39 | Order  Buy a cartography font

*The OpenType release of Antiquarian Scribe™ adds true small caps, numerous ligatures, Central/Eastern European and Greek alphabets, and several distinctive cartographic ornaments.
