What is the Show font?
We would like to introduce Show, a multi-layered chromatic font family based on an old Victorian style wood type.
Show designers Inés Atienza and Juanjo López are members of the Familia Plómez association, a small printshop based in Madrid that devote their efforts to promote everything about letterpress printing, calligraphy, and lettering. One of our favorite typefaces from our collection of wood types has been the basis for creating a new digital typeface. More…
After much searching in old specimen books, we came to find out that it’s part of a type family called Concave, a Victorian type launched in 1884 by the foundry Marder, Luse & Co. After using it on several letterpress projects, we thought we would have a go at digitizing the original type, as well as giving it a multilayered chromatic accompaniment.
Show has an extended character set to support Central & Eastern European as well as Western European languages. It includes monetary symbols and complete punctuation.
As the original font lacked a lowercase, we have replaced them with small caps, which can be used either in conjunction with the caps or independently.

You're probably thinking - Is Show available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. Show 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 Show, 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 Show 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 Show is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Show and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Show.
Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Show for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Show 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 Show remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
If you really want Show and you want to truly own it the legal and safe way, then click here to visit the download and purchase page on MyFonts.com. Here you will be able to obtain the proper license. 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. :)
