Font CD

On the endless and insane quest for authenticity, we have created more than 50 custom fonts to use in props. Typographical fashions change, and since the digital age overtook typesetting and graphic design, many of the fonts common in the time of Lovecraft have fallen into disuse. We've revived many of them from vintage sources, including the 1923 American Type Founder's specimen book and the Mergenthaler Linotype catalog from the mid-1930s. Many of these fonts have slightly rough edges or irregular shapes, to capture the feel of old lead type and bygone printing technologies.

Purchase the entire collection shown below on CD or for only $20, that's less than fifty cents per font! CD includes all fonts in OpenType, TrueType and Postscript formats for easy use on Windows or Macs.
