Overview

Combining strength with intricacy, the typography of the 19th century is at once functional and fanciful, as displayed in this wonderful sampling of Victorian styles: the exaggerated thicks-and-thins of Express and Barnum typefaces; the unusually detailed serifs of Lafayette characters; the extravagant flourishes of Renaissant, Houghton, and Campanile; the swashes and eye-catching dot motifs of Hogarth and Gutenberg.
Typographer and printing historian Dan X. Solo offers this outstanding collection of appealing, highly usable Victorian typefaces that will add a distinctive, old-fashioned flair to design solutions. These attractive letterforms will show their whimsical old-time personality in articles and newsletters, posters and packaging, display ads, signage, and innumerable other graphic projects. And every style is royalty-free.
Presented in 24-, 36-, and 48-point fonts, each of the eight exquisite faces includes complete uppercase alphabet, numerals, and punctuations; all but one are designed with lowercase characters, too. Crisp printing on one side only on glossy, repro-quality stock means you can cut and combine characters directly from the book.
