Fifteen Free Ornamental Wood Type Fonts

Whether you know them by wood type fonts, circus fonts, railroad fonts, western fonts or some other name, these decorative, 1800’s wood type inspired, shadowed typestyles are awfully popular these days. And they’re not just appearing alongside the expected themes, but in all kinds of applications with trendy craft designers like Teresa Collins and the shabby chic crowd leading the way. I couldn’t find a good list of freebies anywhere, so I made my own list. Hope you’ll find it helpful, too. Click on the font name to go to a download site.
