Our Thurbrooke Family has now launched on Myfonts and on Fontspring.
Thurbrooke is an early 20th century inspired display family, offering two sizes of Roman capitals. Five typefaces are offered in the Thurbrooke family. The Regular face is shaded in horizontally engraved lines and suggests something of vintage advertising captions. A reversed ‘Reverso’ face, transposing black and white space is offered, as is a ‘Black’ face with solid letterforms. The remaining two faces are a bit more specialised. Thurbrooke ‘Banner’ is the latest in our popular line of masthead or cartouche faces-very impressive for banner headings. Thurbrooke Initials is a set of initial capitals, which blend in perfectly with Thurbrooke Reverso, or which also make splendid drop capitals. Why not explore some (or all) of the elements of the Thurbrooke family today, and introduce some early 20th century inspired colour to your work?
Here’s the latest stage in the development of our ‘mock-Tudor’ Henrecian font. You’ll see it now includes upper and lower case letter forms, as well as small and petite capitals. The upper case forms have changed substantially in the light of feedback received.
We’re still debating whether the Small and petite Capital forms should be provided as separate typefaces, or as Opentype features within a single typeface. At this stage we’re inclining towards the former, if only because of a dearth of applications with support for the Petite capitals feature, but we’d love to hear people’s views…
The extensive Wolverton family was inspired but a turn of the 20th century luggage label designed by the London and North Western railway. The Wolverton family combines period flair and charm with respect for the modern need for legibility and purposefulness. The family has at its heart four Body text faces-regular, italic, bold and bolt italic.
These are complimented by three display text faces, offering upper and lower case letter forms, all offered in regular, oblique, bold and bold oblique forms. Four all capital based display design are also included if offered in the same four styles, making an extensive and flexible family suitable for a wide range of uses- everything from setting large amounts of text to large scale signage and poster work. Wolverton offers a unique blend of charm an modern flexibility, why not give it a try today? All faces include lining and old style numerals and are extensively kerned. Individual faces are all economically priced and substantial discounts offered for the purchase of larger sets of typefaces.
It’s taken a few days but Beeching has now released on Myfonts. For a short time it will be offered at a 35% discount. Click on the banner below to try out the family of six faces:
Beeching is designed to combine extreme legibility with a hint of retrospective character. It is inspired by the lettering used in the Leslie Green designed stations of the London Underground and is as up to date today as it was the day those stations opened. The Beeching faces (Regular, Bold, Small Capitals, Small Capitals Bold, Shadowed and Small Capitals Shadowed) are ideal for use in large scale signage that needs to be seen over long distances. We feel the family provides a clear demonstration that traditional details, such as serifs and ligatures serve to enhance legibility. Here are a few examples of the family in action:
Our two latest releases have just launched on Fontspring.
Bluebottle is a lively fun family of typefaces, a boisterous fun design, Bluebottle brings a distinctive cheerful character where ever it’s used. Use Bluebottle to bring life and fun wherever you will.
Solidarius is a chubby, friendly typeface which captures the innate legibility of well done felt-tip marker lettering. It’s ideal for any poster needing that ‘hand-lettered’ look combined with optimum legibility.
Stout is a deliberately aggressively solid family for four faces, offered in tow waits and in serif (deliberately large serifs) and sans forms. It’s ideal for signage that needs to be read over long distances or for anything where an emphatic statement is needed. Stout is big and clear and always makes a statement.
Our new art Nouveau inspired release ‘Admiral‘ has now released, both on Myfonts and Fontspring. As we’ve already outlined, this family was inspired by lettering on the façade of a local hostelry. The family comprises two faces, Regular and Small capitals. We’ve posted a few sample images below, in the meantime you can try the family out for yourself on either Myfonts or Fontspring.
The name ‘Admiral’ is inspired by a particular design detail in some of the capital letterforms, but we do think the design works particularly well on ‘Shipping Line‘ posters. Of course the ‘Bentinck Hotel’ might inspire memories of a 1970s BBC period drama amongst some of our readers….
Our two new banner typefaces are currently being offered at an introductory discount on Myfonts.com. Bettendorff is being offered at a 30% discount.

Wolvercote is being offered at a 35% discount. Wolvercote is one of two new ‘Masthead’ typefaces from Greater Albion. This Victorian inspired face makes the construction of ribbon or cartouche banners and mastheads the simple work of a few moments. Wolvercote is also particularly designed to complement our Wolverhampton and Mexborough families.
