About Terra Ignota Font Family
The idea for Terra Ignota came to me years ago as I was admiring a reproduction of "Amerique Septentrionale," a 1650 map by French cartographer Nicolas Sanson, given to me by my parents. The handlettering has a sort of rakish character, evocative of pirates or adventurers at a time of unbridled world exploration. I ended up putting the project aside, but the idea to create this font tugged gently at my mind until I simply couldn't ignore it any longer. The resulting typeface has an italic slant and a deliberate feel, in keeping with its historical roots. Useful for simulating old hand-lettered documents. Has a full character set (and then some).

About Three Islands Press
Three Islands Press (a.k.a., “3IP”) is a small type foundry in Rockport, Maine. Specialties include historical replications, fine text type, old map fonts, and painstaking recreations of vintage and modern handwriting. 3IP is the d.b.a. of Brian Willson, who accidentally stumbled into type design in the 1990s after a career in print and broadcast journalism. He has absolutely no formal training—just a peculiar knack for making fonts that look like real handwriting and antique text materials. 3IP also represents the work of Swedish type designer Lars Bergquist, whose previous career was publishing of encyclopedias and reference literature in the days of lead type. Bergquist’s elegant, varied, multipurpose typefaces are as polished as any out there.
