Background

Noted British type designer David Quay designed Blackmoor in 1983. Based on an old English letter style, this textura-style Blackletter evokes a mediaeval character, expertly mixing a gothic lowercase together with Lombardic capitals. Blackmoor’s rough, distressed features make it ideal for a variety of applications, from serious historical publications to horror movies, and comics.
