Re: [BKARTS] 19th century digital type



Check out doverpublications.com for books with cd rom fonts. I know there's a Victorian one and and one entitled "ornate" lettering. Have not used them yet so I have no idea how well-designed the type is.

Hello everyone,

Is anyone aware of a good source for 19th Century digital fonts? I am trying to find something similar to this:

Most of the 19th Century type that has been digitized is still pleasing to today's sensibilities but lack the intense ornateness, or is quite calligraphic in style.

Thanks in advance.
