I just released a new font, Bulkr black sans headline font. Over the years, I’ve used Impact a lot. But, not because I liked it—rather because it was the only font I could find with the bulk I needed for a given title or whatever. I finally decided to make my own. It was originally built off Librum Sans Bold, but I quickly made a mask of Impact for the widths, bumped the x-height way up, made the horizontals much heavier, and on and on. You know how it is when you start designing.
Bulkr black sans headline font
The result is a black sans with the bulk of Impact and much more interesting character shapes. I suspect I’ll use it a lot. My hope is that you like it as much as I do. Have fun!
The best place to buy it is here: It’s posted at Gumroad at the cheapest price.
It’ll be at MyFonts, FontSpring, and YouWorkforThem ASAP. they’re working on it.
It’s also available at the Creative Market.
Hackberry Font Foundry keeps working on book production fonts
This started as an addition to The Librum Group, but it quickly grew beyond that. I knew what I needed, and it does clearly come form Librum Sans roots, but the x-height and width needed to be radically altered. But it should be compatible stylistically.
Remember we have two special book production groups
- Contenu & Buddy: This was my first successful production group.
- Librum Book Design Group: This is my best group so far. The Bookish font family of four is also the same metrics. You can buy all 15 fonts here. The Bookish family can be purchased here.
It’s designed to show you possibilities with the Librum Book Design group samples—in addition to offering training on using InDesign to publish books. Librum is designed to work well with InDesign. It has a Librum E family which works fluently in ePUBs and Kindle books—with special characters in the ASCII slots and a small caps version in addition to the normal R,I,B,BI four-font family.
