ABOUT







Tuscan fonts

Tuscan is a style of font from the 19th century, popular with wood type foundries. It has upturned serifs, scalloped contours and is often associated with embellished saloon style display fonts. MyFonts has a partial list:

  • Prescott (Page Studio Graphics, 2001, named after the old capital of Arizona).
  • Gullywasher WBW (Nick Curtis, 2001).
  • 57 Rodeo and 66 Rodeo (Baseline Fonts, 2002). [I do not agree with this classification here.]
  • Vglee (Ingrimayne type, 1996).
  • Salloon (Ingrimayne Type, 1990), Court Gesture, Court Jester, Jester RES and Jester Two (all 1990, Ingrimayne Type).
  • Muskitos Caps (Ingrimayne Type, 1996).
  • Thunderbird (Kingsley/ATF).
  • QuentinEF (Elsner&Flake).
  • Thunderbird (Kingsley/ATF).
To which I should add:
  • TuscanMF Narrow (Richard William Mueller).
  • Zebrawood (Adobe).
  • Main Strike and Gold Standard (Font Mesa).
  • Many fonts at Wooden Type by Jordan Davies: Tuscan Egyptian, Antique Tuscan, Gothic Tuscan, Tuscan Italian.
