Geographica Hand font

18th-Century Handlettering
Geographica Hand™, a replication of the hand-lettered titles on British map engravings of the 18th century. Geographica Hand is as legible and versatile as Geographica Roman but more genuinely evocative of the source materials. Its 900 glyphs include several sketchy cartographic illustrations—trees, churches, windmills, and he like. Geographica Hand is a member of both our Old Map Fonts collections. » Try it out here.


Geographica Script font

Fine 1700s Roundhand
Geographica Script™ is a careful simulation of the kind of 18th-century roundhand script you’ll find on engraved maps and trade cards of the mid-1700s. Six months in the making, our latest old script font has more than 1,100 glyphs, including scores of ligatures, historical flourishes, and an eye-popping series of period ornaments. Geographica Script is a member of both our Historical Pens and Old Map Fonts collections. » Try it out here.


Handwritten History Font Bundle

Handwritten History
Our Handwritten History Bundle is a collection of 20 distinctive font designs representing authentic penmanship styles as they’ve changed through the ages, from 1650 to 2010. (Where else might you find a type collection that’ll let you write like John Quincy Adams—or the busy waitress at the local pub, depending on your mood?) Licensed separately, they’d cost $730, but you can have ’em all for just $149a savings of 80%!


Geographica, a new serif typeface

Warm, Hand-Drawn Serif
Geographica™ is a legible serif text-type family modeled after the hand-drawn place names and peripheral narratives on the mid-1700s New World maps of English engraver Thomas Jefferys. Geographica comes with Roman, Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic styles, true small capitals, scores of ligatures, two stylistic alternate titling caps—and has a slew of cartographic ornaments, to boot. Try it out here.


Introducing our new Bonnycastle font

War of 1812
Bonnycastle™ is a vintage titling font inspired by the legends on some maps and charts by Sir Richard Henry Bonnycastle (1791–1847), an English military engineer who served in the War of 1812 and settled in Canada. It comes with more than 1,100 glyphs, including true small caps, stylistic alternates, discretionary ligatures, and several cartographic ornaments. The newest member of our Old Map Fonts collection. Try it out here.


Military Scribe font

Tenth of Foot
Military Scribe™ is modeled after the compact, legible script on the mid- to late-1770s muster rolls of the 10th Regiment of Foot, a British Military unit that saw action at the outset of the American Revolution in the Battle of Lexington and Concord as well as Bunker Hill. Comes with scores OpenType features, including historical ligatures, contextual alternates, and ink blots—more than 1,000 characters in all.


Remsen Script font

Colonial Broadside
Remsen Script™ is a Colonial American cursive based on the hand of the penman who engrossed a three-page broadside addressed to British manufacturers on behalf of the merchants of Philadelphia. The merchants' appeal failed, of course, but the broadside survives as an ancestral keepsake of a family named Remsen. An elegant cursive with numerous period ligatures, conditional alternates, and OpenType stylistic sets.


Abigail Adams font

My Dearest Friend
The eponymous inspiration for Abigail Adams™ carried on a famous epistolary dialog with John, her husband and "Dearest Friend," for more than forty years. Abigail Adams wrote swiftly and intellegently, if not beautifully, in a hand that somehow perfectly represents late-1700s America—as well as her role as key advisor to the second President of the United States.
