ABOUT







Redruth's Basement Software [Tom Redruth]

Tom Redruth is the American designer of Black Sam's Gold, based on handwritten characters from a map reprinted in the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC (vol. 195 no. 5; May 1999). Looks like treasure map writing. He designed Fountain Pen Frenzy in 2001 [compare with Treefrog]. This font was used on the cover of an album by Belle Monroe&her Brewglass Boys. Other typefaces include Bellamy's-Mapbats, Whydah-Heck-Poker, and the old typewriter typeface Carpal Tunnel (2003, based on a Remington typewriter). Finally, he made the Tolkien rune typefaces Tengwar-Teleri (2003) and Tengwar Marzabul (2002). Fontspace link.
