Thomas Jefferys (ca. 1710–1771) was the best-known map engraver in 18th-century England, chiefly because he won (and hyped) the title “Geographer to King George III.” Jefferys was more an engraver/publisher than a geographer, really, since he mostly relied on the cartographic materials of others. Still, his maps of the North American colonies were well known. Geographica is a four-style serif text-type family modeled after the neat hand-lettered place names and peripheral text on Jefferys’s maps. This legible typeface combines a hand-drawn warmth with a distinctly historical flair. With its long serifs and ample x-height, Geographica will add classic elegance to long blocks of text or display type, whether on paper or screen. OpenType features include small capitals and two stylistic sets of titling caps. Comes with a slew of unique cartographic ornaments, and offers full support for Central and Eastern European languages—more than 1,200 glyphs in all. LIMITED-TIME INTRODUCTORY DISCOUNT: Regularly $99, the Geographica family is available for just $39 through the end of May 2016.
