About this font family
Let it be known that this font is named for Excalibur, King Arthur’s Magic Sword. The font is derived from a note that Arthur hastily penned to his Queen, Guinevere, during a lull in one of his many battles against the Saxons. Arthur’s armour was so hefty that he could not easily seat himself, and so to pen his letter to Guinevere he plunged his legendary sword Excalibur into the marshy soil on which he had been fighting and thereby steadied his writing hand with the hasp of his magical sword.
This ancient and battle-weary font is based on the writing from a fragment of that original document. It has been heralded by modern scholars as “grunge” writing of great antiquity. More…
