What is the Bookish font?

This all started with a love for Jenson.
I know there’re hundreds of variations on that theme. But, that is where I began, several years ago. How far it came, as usual as I wandered through the vagaries of font design, is not unusual. If you’ve read any of my font design books, you know my design processes are quite loose and spontaneous. More…
I wanted the general feel of a favorite old font, but softer, easier, and more comfortable. I built these on the same vertical metrics as my Librum Publishing Group. However, this family is not part of that group. I used the metrics because that shows my current taste in fonts.
This family does work with the Librum group—but to be honest, I haven’t experimented enough to come up with a good companion. I suspect I’ll need to make another companion family. I may need make a non-modulated bold version also. But, that remains to be seen. I’m pleased with this.

Is Bookish A free font? Is Bookish Free to Download?

No,Bookish is not free to download. You will need to pay for it I'm afraid. Almost every font that we list on is a paid-for, premium font. We do have a Free Fonts section where we list free fonts that you can download. There is no point trying to find a free download of Bookish so please don't waste your time looking.

It is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Bookish for free. There's a lot of websites that will say "Free Download" but these are just attempts to get you to click on a link which will either take you to an ad landing page or you risk getting viruses on your computer. In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Bookish remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!

The designer and publisher deserves to be paid for their work, as they have put in the hours and the creativity to produce such an amazing font. Good luck with your purchase and future use of this font. :)
