French Octagon from Wood Type Revival

Today, Wood Type Revival brings us another digitally remastered rare and historic style of wood type: French Octagon. Use it big! It was designed for signage, and we serve it with PostScript-based outlines for smooth rendering at large sizes on Windows. Read more about French Octagon at Wood Type Revival’s site.

Upgrade to a Personal plan or higher to use French Octagon. If you’re already a paying Typekit customer, well, enjoy the new font! If you’ve never given Typekit a try, sign up (it’s free!) and upgrade to a paid plan whenever you’re ready.
