Years ago, while flipping through a friend’s old hardbound collection of John Burroughs nature essays, I thought it’d be fun to see if I could create a typeface with the same uneven, decayed look to it. I picked and chose from among the printed characters, then hand-traced their shapes painstakingly, warts and all. What I ended up with is this surprisingly legible weathered serif akin to the late-1800s Century faces.

This product is the roman style only. Has more than 800 glyphs—including true small caps, scores of ligatures, lining and old-style figures, and a few floral (and other) ornaments, just for grins. Use to simulate antique printed text or simply to evoke history, age, and vintage goodness. One of our most popular fonts.
