What is the Carve™ font?
Carve is an African font that was inspired by fonts such as Othello and Neuland designed in the mid-1920s. Rather than attempting to re-create these fonts in a digital form as so many others have done, I have tried to capture the “spirit” of the period and emphasize the “woodcarving” style of the font, while simultaneously giving it a contemporary feel.
As a result the characters differ markedly any of the original styles and have much less of an “Art Deco” look to them. To further modernize Carve, I have included all the characters required for a full character set (lower case, as well as all punctuation, numerals, diacritics, special characters etc). More…
The result is a thoroughly modern re-interpretation. The numbers (0 to 9) bear no relation to any originals but, I believe, are fully in keeping with the upper and lower alphabetic characters of my font.
Carve comes in two styles:
–Regular: contemporary, angular African style
–Incised: exaggerating the chunky, hand-carved “woodcut” effect. The “in-line” effect has been hand-crafted to avoid the mechanical effect of computer-generated inline effects.

You're probably thinking - Is Carve™ available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. Carve™ 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 Carve™, 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 Carve™ 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 Carve™ is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Carve™ and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Carve™.
Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Carve™ for free.

In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Carve™ remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
