What is the Zelda font?

»ZELDA«, my new font family is named after Zelda Fitzgerald, the »Flapper« wife of »Tender is the Night« F. Scott Fitzgerald. They really lived it up at the French Riviera. Despite Scott making money in bundles, being the best paid writer of his time, they spent so much that they were always broke. But the really tragic thing is, Scott thought of himself as a failed writer, he never believed that he actually was »the writer« of his period. More…
Their time was the »Avant Garde« time, that is the French military term for »advance guard«, the ones who were always ahead of everybody else. This period at the beginning of the twentieth century did prepare the way for our modern times. Women especially ignored all conventional behaviour, cut their hair and skirts short, started to study all kinds of subjects that were until then reserved for males only. Those were the first days of women’s lib, we should thank the brave women of that time.
In literature, design and all the other arts a new time dawned and typefaces started to lose their serifs. In commemoration of those days I designed this collection that goes together well, can and should be mixed to your hearts desire.
In the »ZELDA-normal« packet are 610 glyphs, small-caps and all kinds of numbers, that are good for all latin writing languages. For good measure there are tabular numbers, old style numbers and the complete sets of nominators and denominators.
Since not everyone owns opentype savvy software I spread the glyphs over 6 single packets: Zelda-Normal (this is the basic font), Zelda-Capital-Ligatures, Zelda-High-Strung-Caps, Zelda-Narrow-Caps, Zelda-Narrow-Inline-Caps and Zelda-Small-Caps-Up! Enjoy!

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

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

If you really want Zelda 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. :)
