Plunderin’ for Typographic Treasure

Ahoy, designer mateys! Aboard the good ship FontShop today some of us arrrr fully celebratin’ Talk Like a Pirate Day. If yer out revelin’, here’s some type booty for ye to check out.

First, fer all ye fans of our Pinterest page, we’ve got a new board that should suit yer fancy.

If ye prefer fontlists, we’ve got an oldie but goodie buried on the site. Ye can pillage Pirate Fonts to yer heart’s content.


If yer lookin’ for bedtime tales of the sea for yer parrots or lil’ scalawags tonight, have ye heard the one about Jim Ford‘s Captain Quill? After losing his right hand to a spirited sea dog, Captain Quill settled down to focus on his first love, nautical treasure cartography. The ease of stroke in this swashy script face confirms what his boyhood calligraphy teacher stressed from the start: It’s all in the elbow.

If you’re not sure if ye are “hooked” on any of these, try ‘em out first in the FontShop Plugin for Creative Suite. Stock up on sea type for your next adventure or on landlubber fonts too.

Yar!
