Broadsheet™

Having in hand an original issue of The New-England Weekly Journal ("Containing the most Remarkable Occurrences Foreign & Domestick") from April 8, 1728, and a commemorative reprint of the Massachusetts Sun ("Americans!---Liberty or Death!---Join or Die!"), from May 3, 1775, I set to work. The result: a full-featured font family that simulates the type on printed matter from the Colonial American period. Broadsheet gives you all the double-s ligatures you could ever dream of. Looks implausibly authentic in either display type or long blocks of body copy. You’ll even find a couple printer’s flourishes here. The Broadsheet family has roman and true italic styles.* $US49. | Order  Buy old fonts

*The OpenType release of Broadsheet™ adds true small capitals, old-style and lining figures, numerous ligatures, and Central/Eastern European alphabets.
