Black Family Free TTF PC Font by Paul Lioyd Fonts

Black is the new Black. Or maybe I should say, Black is back. Because this olde font family has been around a while and is still the true Blackletter standard in free PC TTF fonts.

This olde style, medieval blackletter family distribution archive offers normal and wide widths of embossed, incised, plain and shadowed styles, for a total of 8 fonts in the Black blackletter family.

This font was created by Paul Lloyd and released as a free font, distributed without a specific license, and is therefore available for personal use, commercial use, studying, conversion to other platforms, editing, modifying, appending and/or (re)distribution.

What is particularly nice about this Blackletter stalwart is that it is legible, has nearly a full character set, offering uppercase, lowercase, numerals and some limited punctuation -&,.;:?!

Black is available for download from his website at typOasis within His Black Jewels section hosts the Blackletter fonts:

Paul Loyd's fonts page is actually at the lloyd part of that address:

I have kept the Black family of fonts complete in this archive. I will make individual fonts from the family available once I am a bit more caught-up and I'm sure that it's OK to so. As I do, I will update this archive's text file and list the archive of each font so that if someone is just missing one, or needs a particular style, they can reference all of the family archives from within each accompanying text file.

This distribution archive is available at its homepage in Font-Journal:

Fonts files included in this distribution archive with this text file ("Black Family.txt"):

Embossed Black Normal.ttf

Embossed Black Wide.ttf

Incised Black Wide.ttf

Plain Black Wide.ttf

Each individual style will have a homepage at Font-Journal, as well (eventually, unless I find that I am not allowed to break-up the archive).

Font Tools:

If you would like to get yourself a decent font editor and create, add to or otherwise modify any font, I recommend Fontographer, although TypeTool might do the job, also. FontLab is the flagship typographic tool of Fontlab.

Submit Your Font:

Be sure to submit any font you might create or legally modify that we could use here. Any font that has a complete letterset (A-Z, a-z, 0-9 &+~!@#$%^&*()_=-`"':;<>?/|\[{}],.) that is freely distributable would be greatly apprectiated, especially if it is OK for commercial use.

About Font-Journal:

Font-Journal is a cataloged archive of freeware and shareware fonts that I maintain for my small business, start-up and freelancing clients. I try to collect PC truetype freeware fonts that can be used for commercial purposes, and shareware fonts that can be used for commercial purposes upon registration and/or payment of the shareware fee. I also try to collect freely distributable web fonts of the same variety. The end result is a pretty decent font repository, although I can only work on it in my spare time, which I have little of.

About Me:

My portfolio usually needs to be updated, as I always have a ton of projects going and I even like to design my own fonts to offer exclusively through my font respository at Font-Journal. But it is another good way to contact me. Short Link:

I started out as an motorcycle racer and mechanic. That didn't work out and I never got in a race car as planned. I wound-up as an illustrator, animator, doing some programming and tech support. Plus I have always been amatuer artist, photographer and videographer. I was designing logos, posters and graphics in college with Illustrator and Photoshop, and wound-up making a website portfolio just afterwards. A few people liked it and I wound-up as a freelance web design studio. Then I expanded into web hosting, then domain name registrations and servers, offering a complete set of webmaster tools as Domain Hostmaster. I then added the Domainance store in an effort to keep .name registrations and transfers available when our vendor dropped it. Short Link: Short Link:

Nowadays, I am just trying to corner a peice of the domain name registration and website hosting space, as I sell for less than most and offer more with better technical support. Professional domainers, designers, developers, optimizers and webmasters do like how I keep prices as low as possible and add my expertise and value where I can.

'Mobile-First' Responsive Website Design:

If you are interested in getting a website designed for yourself or your business, I still do that at Salamader Design. Stop by and check me out there. I have a growing portfolio of sites I need to add there...
