Xmas Type Hype
It’s never too early to download your favorite Christmas fonts–the typefaces that keep on giving. Not surprisingly in this season known for ornamental excess (and don’t get me wrong, I love it, and even did a book on artists’s xmas cards), there’s an excessive number of faces and ornaments available for the taking. Many of them are free; and for all your dingbat needs, check out this site as well as this one. But that’s not all: More are here and here, along with something a little more traditional. Blessed are the novelty types, for they shall inherit the season.
Have a favorite of your own? Let me know in the comments.
