Galderglynn 1884 is a nineteenth-century style sans-serif typeface. This is a refined expansion of another typeface called Galderglynn Esquire. Galderglynn Esquire was an intentionally rustic looking typeface based on a mixture of several pre-twentieth century grotesques employing deliberately unrefined weight and spacing. Galderglynn 1884 has that same pastoral design but polished into a practical workhorse font family. The condensed fonts are slightly squared off, with careful effort employed to keep the style squarely in the nineteenth century—more like a typical condensed newspaper headline type than a twentieth-century superelliptical like Eurostile or Univers. The extra-condensed “squeeze” fonts are completely flat-sided, not unlike old wooden poster types or extremely tight metal newspaper headline fonts. If your application supports OpenType features, you can access tabular and lowercase (old-style) numerals. There are three special effect fonts available: all-capitals shadow, and engraved regular and condensed styles. Most Latin-based European, and some Cyrillic-based writing systems are supported, including the following languages.
