What is the Pekin font?
Designed by Ernst Lauschke in 1888 and issued by Barnhart Bros. & Spindler foundry in Chicago under the name Dormer.
It was revived in 1923 by the foundry with a new name, Pekin. We have “regularized” the face for modern use, but have included the changed characters as alternates.

You're probably thinking - Is Pekin available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. Pekin 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 Pekin, 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 Pekin 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 Pekin is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Pekin and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Pekin.
Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Pekin for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Pekin 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 Pekin remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
