What is the Arturo font?
Arturo is a brand new font family drawn from the original inspiration of an old alphabet in one of Dan Solo’s Dover Clip Art books. It has moved far away from those raw roots, however. Every character has been redrawn. For example, I had a light version that I never could get working. Arturo is based on that light style and called Arturo Book.
The name comes from a good friend of mine in El Paso. He was the guinea pig upon whom I foisted off the beginnings of this style so many years ago. I did several marketing pieces for him using the raw drawings. I figured that he deserved to have the family named after him, at the very least. More…
This is a normal font family for me in that it has caps, lowercase, small caps with the appropriate figures for each case. This font has all the OpenType features in the set for 2009. There are several ligatures for your fun and enjoyment: bb gg ff fi fl ffi ffl ffy fj ft tt ty Wh Th and more. Like all of my fonts, there are: caps, lowercase, small caps, proportional lining figures, proportional oldstyle figures, & small cap figures, plus numerators, denominators, superiors, inferiors, and a complete set of ordinals 1st through infinity.

You're probably thinking - Is Arturo available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. Arturo is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Arturo, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Arturo and be done with it.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Arturo is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Arturo and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Arturo.
Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Arturo for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Arturo Download" you will see 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 Arturo remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
