  • Generic Company Place Holder Once Upon A Time

Once Upon A Time from Wino Sutarmin Kadir at Fun Record is borderline spooky, but there's no dripping blood involved. This TrueType outlines font looks hand-hewn, maybe by a resident scarecrow wielding a calligraphic pen for the first time, and (unless you look really closely) looks almost like intertwined sticks for the letters.

Once Upon A Time includes all upper and lower case letters, but unfortunately no punctuation or numbers at all. This rather limits its use: Even though Once Upon A Time could easily be used for display or even text purposes, unless you are very creative with your copy you'll probably only be able to use for poster statements (no exclamations, mind you). Once Upon A Time is available free for personal use. For commercial use, please contact Wino (pronounced We Know) for license details.
