About Fred Font Family

The Fred family is based on the casual hand lettering of Fred G. Cooper: cover artist, cartoonist, and letterer for Life magazine in the 1920s and '30s. His relaxed style captures the flavor of the Roaring Twenties, and the digital font was developed for use in the credits and title cards for a 1920s-style silent movie, The Call of Cthulhu. In an effort to keep the hand-lettered look, the OpenType font has numerous discretionary ligatures and contextual alternates, along with fleurons and ornaments.

About E-phemera

E-phemera fonts are meant to revive type from years gone by in a way which captures the feeling of pre-digital printing technology. Most of the fonts in the collection were first developed for private use in designing vintage prop documents for movies and television shows. E-phemera fonts are inspired by old printed and hand-lettered material, and are usually designed a little rough and a little irregular, in deliberate defiance of the crisp perfection and merciless uniformity of modern digital fonts. Multiple letterforms and ligatures are provided, when possible and practical. We here at E-phemera fonts love computers and wouldn't do without them, but we also wish to remember and celebrate the days when every letter was an individual piece of metal or wood, and not just a collection of BCP data. Print is dead. Long live print!
