Licensing Options

You can use this font in any of the following places. Read the full EULA text for details about each license. If you have a usage in mind that's not covered by these licenses, contact us and we'll see what we can do.

Desktop: for use on a desktop workstation

For the most common uses, both personal and professional, for use in desktop applications with a font menu.

For example:

  • Install the font on your Mac OS X or Windows system
  • Use the font within desktop applications such as Microsoft Word, Mac Pages, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, etc.
  • Create and print documents, as well as static images (.jpeg, .tiff, .png)

Desktop licenses are based on the number of users of the fonts. You can change the number of users by clicking the quantity dropdown option on Buying Choices or Cart pages.

Please be sure to review the listing foundry's Desktop license agreement as some restrictions may apply—such as use in logos/trademarks, geographic restrictions (number of locations), and products that will be sold.

Torquemada Desktop EULA

Webfont: for your website

Webfonts can be used on a single domain. Agencies responsible for multiple websites, for example web design agencies or hosting providers, may not share a single webfont license across multiple websites.

Every time the webpage using the webfont kit is loaded (i.e, the webfont kit CSS which holds the @font-face rule is called) the counting system counts a single pageview for each webfont within the webfont kit.

For usage in graphic images shown on the website, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.

This font's webfont license is:

Annual

You get a total number of prepaid pageviews that can be used over time. This means that you will pre-pay for a number of pageviews, then you'll have to come back to order more after your site has been viewed that number of times.

For example, if you order 250,000 page views, when your webpages using the webfonts have been viewed 250,000 times, you will need to buy the webfont package again for an additional number of prepaid pageviews.

About Torquemada Font Family


The Torquemada family marks the return of eminent American calligrapher Philip Bouwsma to the type scene after almost 7 years of hiatus, and he is certainly coming back with a lot of bells and whistles! Torquemada offers the same kind of excitement that emanated from Bouwsma's work in 1970s and 1980s New York, when he was one of the most important leaders of the New Calligraphy movement that brought calligraphy forth as a mainstream art and craft, and spawned many of today's known calligraphers. Not only is this calligraphic art at its very digital finest, but it also introduces a completely new concept in drawing letters with a broad pen. Bouwsma's Torquemada Principle defines the harmony of weight, contrast, tension and space by consistently changing the angle of the broad pen between 0 and 80 degrees throughout all strokes. When the strokes become hairlines at the lowest angles, the paths made by the actual corners of the pen cross over one another, making the outline flat or slightly hollowed. This new calligraphic idea gives us the rare opportunity to quote an old Monty Python joke: Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition! Torquemada comes in four variations: Torquemada One regular and bold, and Torquemada Two regular and bold. The difference between Torquemada One and Two is not just a simple change in vertical metrics. The stroke proportions of each variation were also optically adjusted for maximum readability at small sizes, as well as maximum aesthetics for display work. Check the PDF included in the MyFonts gallery section for further information on the Torquemada Principle, visual samples, and the differences between the font's four variations. Torquemada comes in all major font formats, in two separate packages priced affordably, or in one complete bundle, also priced very affordably. The OpenType version is two fonts, a regular and a bold, with the proportional alternates slotted as contextual substitutions in the programming of the font. A few alternates and random swashings are also included within the fonts. Torquemada's applications are virtually endless. This is a real calligraphic workhorse that has the power to elevate any design to higher levels of visual appeal. You can trust this work to be the perfect choice for book, film and music covers, titling, posters, signage, flyers, packaging and all kinds of branding. We'd like to think of the advent of Torquemada as the beginning of a new calligraphic Renaissance. And who is better to start it than a master of calligraphy like Philip Bouwsma?
