Font Friday: Wanted Fonts

September 5, 2008

The font I wanted to present this week doesn’t have a page all its own. But that just means you get a link with several fonts to download. That’s not such a bad deal. Wanted Fonts has hundreds, if not thousands, of fonts available for download.

I wanted a kind of handwriting font today and I liked the look of Scribblicious. It looks as if someone has taken several strokes to make up each letter. It is listed as freeware, but read any usage restrictions carefully.

    I am looking for a font to give an “old newspaper” feel. I need to replicate articles from small western newspapers from the late 1910’s that were hand set and sometimes fuzzy. Any ideas you could pass on?

    John,

    Off the top of my head, I’d suggest looking at Caslon Antique. I’m not sure it is the perfect answer, but it is the only one I can think of right now. I’ll do some research this week and try to feature a good answer as my font next week.

    Foster,

    That certainly is the font closest to our needs as we have seen. I’ll fork out the $32 if you don’t come across anything else.

    Good going!

    John
