From Maryland based Nick Curtis – AKA Nick’s Fonts – “I first saw this font almost thirty years ago, as part of the AM phototypesetting catalog; since then, it has made a few appearances as stripped-down internet freeware, under the names Fanfare or Berlin Deco. It combines Art Deco sensibilities with traditional German blackletter forms — a perfect example of the Gebrauchsgraphik style of the 1920s.” Download Materhorn TTF.
Somewhere between blackletter and olde english (not the malt liquor) falls the typography of pirates, the fonts of the seven-seas, and that’s where Rapscallion lands smack-dab in the middle of. Crafted by Ryan Splint in a drunken debauchery-fuelled design inspired by the Melbourne, Australia folk-punk band MUTINY is this hearty, rough, scraggly face. If you are designing for a pirate ship, this one should be loaded in your font-arsenal. What’s another word for pirate treasure? Download Rapscallion TTF.
