Spargo is inspired by 20s and 30s American typefaces, often seen on share certificates and other securities. We thought it was time to bring a touch of transatlantic boom and ebullience to our portfolio of typefaces, not to mention a healthy dose of Roaring 20s spirit. Spargo is the result, offered in six all capitals display typefaces.
Here are speciments of the six faces...

Flapper is family which embodies a great deal of fun and more than a little spirit of the roaring 20s. If ever a set of typefaces could dance a high kicking Charleston, these are they. Flapper is offered in regular, condensed, oblique and outline forms, and they all bring a great deal of fun and life wherever they are used. The Flapper family (yes, think of one of those dancing 20s girls with a long string of pearls...) is ideal for casual heading, bold captions, poster work and anywhere else a sense of fun is required.
Clip is a display typeface inspired by the shape of a paperclip, but it’s not designed with the usual minimalistic modular approach. Instead, Clip mimics the construction, proportions and contrast of classic bold text typefaces and has one unique characteristic: each of its characters is drawn with only one single line.
Clip family consists of 3 fonts, Hair, Light and Regular, each with 745 glyphs (supporting more than 70 latin based languages), 4 stylistic sets and advanced OpenType features. When Stylistic set 1 is activated, the overlapping loops contract, giving the text a whole new character. Moreover, every uppercase character is also available in an ornamental swash variant, which means most of the capitals have four different versions.
Greater Albion's next two releases are now available on Myfonts.com and Fontspring.
Greater Albion Typefounders has just released the Spillsbury family on Myfonts.com.
Spillsbury was inspired by some examples of 1920s signwriting (principally seen on the side of some vintage vans-good thing they were in a photograph and not on the move!).
Spillsbury draws inspiration from these sources to provide a unique combination of legibility and flair, which echoes the charm of advertising and publicity material from the halcyon days of the 1920s.
A basic range of four display faces os offered - Regular, Plain (not all that plain really!), Shaded and Shadowed.
I keep feeling it is Leking by Eduardo Recife but then, it probably just isn't.
The font I am trying to figure it is of the text TYPE FACE.
Of course I tried whatthefont.
I think the resolution is a bit too low though.
Greater Albion have just released two new families on Myfonts and Fontspring.
Portello is a display family in the tradition of Tuscan advertising and display faces. It's a family of three 'all capital' faces. A perpendicular regular form is offered, along with an italic form (a true italic - with purpose designed glyphs-NOT merely an oblique) and a basic form for small text - which dispenses with the family’s characteristic outlined look. It offers the spirit of the Victorian era with ready and distinctive legibility. It's ideal for poster work, especially at large sizes, and for signage with a period flair.
Does anyone know what font this is?
What about similar typefaces?
Thanks very much
Greater Albion Typefounders have just released the Worthing family on Myfonts.com and Fontspring (fonts.com release to follow).
Worthing aims to combine Victorian charm with modern-day requirements for legibility and clarity, and we hope, demonstrates that traditional elegance still has its place in the modern world. Meanwhile, for those who our curious about the naming of our fonts, Mr Lloyd our designer was reading Mr Wells (H. G.) “War of the Worlds” recently. No doubt some of you will remember the part that Worthing in Sussex played in that story. Worthing is offered in three styles, regular, alternate and shaded. It's ideal for Victorian and Edwardian era inspired design work, posters and signage, as well as for book covers, chapter headings and so forth.
I need a beautiful E for a design.
iit has to be unique and powerful.
i was thinking more of a decorative e than serif or sans serif.
could you help me out?
Can somebody please help me to identify this font? I have to add another link to this website and I am having trouble identifying it. I personally think it is kinda ugly. I might just end up removing the font from the website and going with a standard system font. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Looking to identify this. Tweet me if you know what it is. My twitter handle is @bwaggoner. If you ID it correctly, I'll send you a HOOK t-shirt. Thanks!
A new, hopefully refreshingly mad, typeface just released at Myfonts.
Greater Albion has just released three new families on Myfonts.com.
Jonquin was inspired by some hand lettering seen on a World -War One recruiting poster. It’s a family of three faces for display work and headings designed to be used readily as an 'All-Capitals' face as well as in upper and lower case format. Regular and bold weights are offered, as well as an even more decorative incised form. The whole family is ideally suited for poster and advertising work, as well as book and record covers and period themed signage.
Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.
Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.
Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.
Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:
Neat modular font.
Synthesis of points and circles))
I'm looking for a font that is similar to this one: http://twitpic.com/19kohb
This would have been fine but the 'S' has been really lazily executed, so I refuse to use it as it would bug the hell out of me. Any suggestions would be welcome.
Please me out and let me know what this typeface is? I know I've seen it before but what is it? I would like the one that says post card and also the one that says rsvp.
thanks in advance!
Here is my first attempt at making a font :
I would be happy to get any comments from all of you, because I didn't had much feedback from typographers.
Anyway, when I made it, I didn't tought it would be accepted on MyFonts, so when I saw people was buying it, I started to think about a full charachter set and redesigning all glyphs to make them work better each others. I'm also working on the kerning, hinting and all things that needs to be done to make it more 'professionnal'.
Thanks by advance,
Sorry for bumping guys, but I think my post should be in this place rather than in Release, as it's still a work in progress, and I'd be very glad to get any comment.
Looking for a font similar to the "Aventine" in the below pic- any ideas??
Greater Albion's two latest projects, Adantine and Corvone are at the point of being released on Myfonts.com. In the meantime, here are some samples of the two families in action on our blog.
Could you help me identify the fonts on this image?
