    Display font Autumn Gifts uses acorns, corn, and leaves to make letters for a seasonal display.

Do you remember those days of your youth when you'd get lost in the corn maze for hours, until your parents had to send in the farmer to look for you? If you do, Autumn Gifts—a free TrueType Outlines font from West Winds Fonts—could be your new personal favorite.

Each letter comprises corn and husks or oak leaves and acorns, stylishly drawn yet relaxed and fun. Autumn Gifts includes just upper case letters—lower case would be too complex to display well—plus numbers and common punctuation. As a concept, the straight-lined letters work the best; the curved letters like the O and B seem a little forced, but there are exceptions: An oak leaf makes a comma and an acorn is the period.

Autumn Gifts is a solid display font that looks its best at 72 points and larger; any smaller than 24 point and the detail disappears. It's available free for both personal and commercial use, and is definitely one to have fun with if you are planning your own corn maze.

Note: The "Try it for free" button on the Product Information page takes you to the vendor's site, where you can download the latest version of the software.
