What is the Zapatista font?

Zapatista is derived from a typeface that I designed in 1998 but never released. It is a playful slab serif with a texture that is sometimes subtle and reminiscent of the irregularities of letterpress printing.
Like a fine wine, this face has been aged to perfection and is now ready for public consumption.
It includes a full character set with accented characters as well as a second full set of alternate uppercase, lowercase, and numbers. OpenType makes it easy to mix and match the two sets of letters to create custom designs. It’s like having 2 fonts in one!

You're probably thinking - Is Zapatista available to Download for free?

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