Attic Antique [2 Fonts] | The Fonts Master

Flipping through a friend’s old hardbound collection of John Burroughs nature essays a while back, I thought it’d be fun to try to develop a typeface with the same uneven, imperfect look to it.

I picked and chose among various printed characters, enlarged them somewhat with a photocopier, then hand-rendered each. Had to custom-make some of the accents and symbols, then added a couple goofy dingbats just for the heck of it.

The result: an amazingly legible serif family akin to the Century faces.
