I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick. Add all of them to your font collection! Let it grow!

We are back with our regular font post! We have different sorts — from Abraham Lincoln to wolves. I wonder which one you will fall in love with.

Grab that magnifying glass! Why? Yore doesn’t look all that impressive from far away, but if you zoom into the letters, you can see little hearts! YES. You heard right! Little hearts shape these letters. Little, adorable hearts! It’s soooo beautiful. I’m actually having a hard time looking away.

Inspired by the proportions of the 16th President of the USA, and advertisements/playbills of the 1800s, Abraham Lincoln is a humanistic display face with moderate contrast and sturdy serifs.

Four scores and seven years ago, I found Abraham Lincoln. Correction: Like a year and a half ago, I found this font. And of course, I had to use this popular quote because it announces to the world that it is Abraham Lincoln. Isn’t it a perfect interpretation of him? I personally think it is.

I love that the tagline for this font is “Tall. Skinny. Honest.” :D

ARH-WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Wolf in the City makes me think of wolves prowling in dark alleyways with their eyes glowing menacingly, growling at strangers to keep on walking. It also reminds me of Voluptate, but a more thicker and curvier version of it.

Capture It reminds me of the guys from the city who came by the apartment complex I lived in when I was a child and spray painted the house number on the sidewalk. I was absolutely mad that my parents refused to buy me spray paint and stencils. With this font, I love that the letter isn’t a solid color. It has specks in it that makes it realistic.

Which font is your favorite? I absolutely adore Yore. If you missed previous font post, voila!

  1. I love your font posts sooo much!!

  2. Yore is the font we would use to write all our love letters to Lee Pace in like huge fonts to prove our love and devotion to him.

    Abraham Lincoln is perfect for typography *O* I love Lost Type fonts, THEY ARE THE BEST.

    Wolfs in the City is amazingggg! Such a sucker for cursive fonts and the name is perfect!

    LOL CEE, YOU AND THE SPRAY PAINT. (though seriously your parents should have let you do this because you would probably stencil in something so much cooler than a house number)

    Oh my gosh, that Abe Lincoln tagline is perfection!

    And a font made out of tiny hearts?? Adorable.

  6. I love the Abe Lincoln font! So neat and easy on the eyes. The Yore font is so pretty too – I actually like the look of it from far away! It’s elegantly scribbly which isn’t something I see often!

    I love the variety of your picks in this post!

    I actually use Abraham Lincoln on my blog! It’s nice and clear without being too generic. :)

  8. The Abraham Lincoln font is perfect! Look at its proportions, its neatness! Gah! But Wolf in The City has got to be my favourite out of this batch. It’s quite similar to Voluptate, just a little weightier!

    Gah! Yore Script is lovely! Thanks for sharing! (P.S.– I think Abraham Lincoln would approve)! ;)
