About this font family
The ornamented and magnificent type design used with the color plates of Owen Jones' “The Grammar of Ornament” has served as a model for this nineteenth century typeface.

In addition, lowercase letters have been added for design convenience.
Astoria Antique will make a great choice whenever a period or Victorian look is desired. More…
