In the wood font old american gothic

by Itsmesimon in Fonts / Display


In the wood font hard to classify but I was aiming for an old American gothic feel. It's a uppercase display typeface. 100% handmade.

It looks a bit spooky, a bit scary and it's quite distressed. It's not full-on horror, but it looks creepy—more Marilyn Manson than Marilyn Monroe.

It only has capital letters but does include punctuation, symbols, numbers and support for Western, Central, and South Eastern European characters.

It's a display typeface so use it for headlines and text at large sizes.

Font Formats

Available in .OTF and .TTF.
