Period (Antique or Retro) Fonts

The term Picture Fonts was first used by FontHaus. They are also called icon fonts. They are the successors to the stock cuts—images of horse-drawn carts, pigs, steamboats, etc.—issued by 18th and 19th century typefounders and the clip art sold by Letraset and its rivals in the 1960s and 1970s. Picture fonts run a wide gamut from comic figures (such as the perennial favorite, the little man with the big head) to sci-fi creatures. Some picture fonts are iconic images such as flags, Christmas trees, hearts, and stars. Some sample names of fonts gives a good idea of the variety of designs available within the picture font category: Underpants, Ampersand Appliances, Critters, Insectile Set, Autobats (automobiles in silhouette) and Fruit and Veggie Doodles. Picture fonts are whimsical and they are serious; they are abstract and they are realistic. There is something for every taste and every need.
