Antiquarian™

The titles struck me as handsome—the titles and captions and place labels on a page I have of Henri Abraham Chatelain’s Atlas Historique. I’d already modeled Antiquarian Scribe after the neat, slanted penmanship used in the body text of Chatelain’s famous old world atlas; now I felt compelled to digitize this legible roman hand, as well. The letterforms are strong and handsome. They’ve got a certain deft, organic character. A personality. I can’t fully explain it. But this antique alphabet seems suitable for many applications. Antiquarian is a full-featured font* that works well with Antiquarian Scribe. US$39. | Order  Buy an old map font

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