What is the Victoriana font?
Victoriana arose from an inquiry from the Victorian Society for a Victorian font for their journal. As it turned out, no commission resulted, but interest in such a font was aroused in Andy Benedek.
Basing the design on some woodblock letterforms, outlines of a basic set of characters were drawn. These, however, were modified to the extent that the final font bore little resemblance to the woodblock letterforms.
As erstwhile cyclists, the font was named after the British and champion world track cyclist, Victoria Pendleton who was greatly admired.

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