A TrueType Font by S. John Ross
Cumberland Games & Diversions

Often as not, the fonts I post are those Iíve built for a specific graphics project, and thatís the case with this one, ALMANAC OF THE APPRENTICE. The name is a simple-minded jest, a reference to the fact that this is a cruder, simpler, and more casual cousin of ATLAS OF THE MAGI. ďAlmanacĒ is also built of a heavier line-weight, and to achieve the effects I wanted I doodled the original sample much smaller than I did its more formal relative. This isnít quite a complete keyboard set; itís an all-caps display set with select punctuation and a few glyphs duplicated as placeholders (the brackets are identical to the parentheses, for example, but the curly-brackets are at least a variant of them). At any rate, itís friendly and fun. Enjoy!
