FONT RECOGNITION VIA FONT MOOSE

ABOUT







PrimaFont

Foundry that was run in the 1990s by Christine Mauerkirchner and Rainer Grunert out of Kronberg, Germany. They made about 30 free Truetype and PostScript fonts, and were selling over 2000 fonts at 2.50 Euro a shot. Check here for Berthold A.G. clones of all famous families. The main PrimaFont collection in PostScript cost 1700 USD! As far as I can tell, if the 30 free-font sampler is any indication, this collection is not different from the good old Adobe, Monotype or Linotype collections, which may all be found somewhere if one looks hard enough.

Free fonts: Cheboygan, Exmouth (copperplate script), Jacoba (another copperplate calligraphic script), Mouth (uncial), Livingstone (uncial), Marlon Book, Oliver (Victorian), Scoutlight DB, Shanghai (oriental simulation face), and Xtra (Greek simulation face).
