All hail, scribes! Facing a document that requires a heavy hand, perhaps to inform the Queen of a new continent? Fire up that quill-tipped cursor and download TrueType font RM New Albion to get your missive out the door.

RM New Albion maintains its angle on classic Blackletter by serving up a shot of Old English with a twist of computer-age coding. You'll find the characters legible beginning at 24pt and commanding in headlines 72pt and up. Hand-drawn appeal gives the impression you labored late into the night, but 106 characters (encompassing a healthy dose of numerals and symbols ) guarantees you'll retire at a civilized hour. Plus, the designer has thoughtfully included the @ sign, the better to let the Queen know where to reach you with hearty congratulations.

Note: To use this font, unzip the folder and install the .ttf file in the folder C:\Windows\Fonts. Note that the font won't appear in Microsoft Office applications until you close and re-open them.
