DioriteDiorite is modern face built on classical letterforms—but left with a bit of residual roughness. Some might call Diorite forthright, others brutal. (It reminded the designer of the dark, hard igneous rock of the same name, treasured by the ancient Egyptians for statuary.) The typeface has a relatively chunky, four-style family; the italics are true cancellaresca corsiva, also writ heavy. “The cancellaresca is of course a Gothic design,” notes Lars. “Just use a broader pen, and you’ll see!” Has four styles: regular, bold, cursive, and cursive bold. US$85.

“This is a fantastic resource and the fonts are beautiful!”
—C.B., Bethesda MD

“I'm a collector of 19th century antiques and photographs, and like to make labels and scrapbooks using fonts that fit the period of my items. I've even tried to learn the penmanship myself using dip pens... your fonts will make it so much easier!”
—P.M., Palatine IL

“I think [Texas Hero] is amazing. It is incredibly beautiful and in my opinion looks very authentic.”
—E.H., Brookline MA

“There's a fair number of what I call 'scrawl' faces out there. [Treefrog] is one of the very few I really like.”
—P.M., Palatine IL

“You have maintained a level of quality in the design of your various fonts that rivals the best foundries.”
—G.V., Salem OR
