What is the Craftsman™ font?
The Craftsman font is a faithful reproduction of the logo, or Title typeface used for Gustav Stickley’s “Craftsman” Magazine, the foremost journal of the American Arts & Crafts Movement during its publication years of 1901-1916. It is an All-Caps font, with condensed and closely-spaced characters, specifically designed for titles and headlines. The “Craftsman” font is available in two versions: “Craftsman Regular” and “Craftsman Outline.” Each is two fonts in one, in the sense that the capital letters are contained in a hand-drawn box (as on the cover of “The Craftsman” Magazine). Lower-case characters are identical, but without the box. Thus, the two may be used separately, or in combination, to achieve a desired effect.
