Geomancy Typefaces

May 2010

Geomancy is chunky, retro geometric font that harkens back to French and American Art Deco. With some letterforms taken directly from posters and other ephemera of the period, the all-uppercase set comes with many alternates and ligatures so you can give a little of that varied, hand-painted feeling to your work.

Geomancy Extra Bold and Geomancy Hairline work beautifully together, on top of one another, or as separate fonts altogether:

Such a lovely typeface with so many terrific variations!

3. Eva:

I love this typeface, beautiful!

4. Robson Sobral:

Hey, dude! Both fonts have the same family name! Linotype FontExplorer X refuses to install both.

By the way, beautiful typefaces!

5. Chris:

Absolutely beautiful. Would you consider releasing it for web use?

June 23, 2010

6. Tom:

Lovely! I think it fits a project I’m working on perfectly.

June 23, 2010

Finally, a free art deco alternative to the hackneyed Bauhaus typeface.

8. Royz:

I agree Brian!

9. Natasha:

Yes, absolutely! Feel free to use it with @font-face or what have you.

That is a great font! Thank you!

12. Lisa:

These are wonderful fonts! I’m very much a novice graphic enthusiast, but I would really like to know how you layered these fonts – that is such a great look. Can anyone help me with that process? Thanks

13. Julia:

Thank you for making this amazing font!

August 27, 2010

14. Mark:

Very nice. It’s a shame it can’t be used commercially out of the box, so I can’t use it.

But I enjoyed looking.

Thanks!

18. Laura:

Hi,

LOVE this but it won’t download both for me. Both the Hairline and the Extra Bold download as the Extra Bold. How can I remedy this?

Thanks!!

Nice font. Thanks for sharing.

21. Deborah:

Okay, it’s kinda late and I’ve had a really long hard day, but I must be going crazy too. I see several comments about multiple Geomancy fonts but for the life of me I only see one link to download. Were there other links previously for different versions of this font? Thanks for a great font, by the way.

November 11, 2010

22. Natasha:

Thank you! A flatter button?

November 11, 2010

23. Natasha:

Hi, Deborah,

The two fonts are contained in one .zip file, and that’s the file you get when you click the Download link.

November 11, 2010

24. Vida:

I am also wondering what the simplest way to do the layering (as in the Kiss and Tell example). Can’t seem to get it right. Are the thin lines drawn and not actually the hairline font? Any help would be appreciated!

December 20, 2010

25. Bruno:

Vida, I’m afraid the Kiss and Tell example had those lines drawn in by hand. It was actually the inspiration that led to the creation of the hairline version. The layering with the hairline version looks more like the greyish gradient image. Sorry for the confusion!

December 20, 2010

Is this a site templete? I like the layout very much.

December 27, 2010

27. Pegah:

Love the font, but I’ve installed both the Hairline and the Extra bold versions, and only the Hairline shows up when I try to use it in a program. Is there a remedy for this?

30. Adam:

This is a truly awesome font but, like many others, I can only install one font, i.e. Extra Bold and not the Hairline version!! Help!!!! I need this font!!!!!! :)

31. Cacau:

Beautiful job! Thanks for sharing!

32. Sarah:

Gorgeous font! Can this be used commercially?

June 14, 2011

33. Natasha:

Hi, Sarah! Thanks! If you want to use it commercially, just donate an amount you see fit. We’d also love to see whatever you make with it!

June 15, 2011

34. Michell:

Sweet!

July 16, 2011

35. Maryann:

I installed both Hairline and Extra Bold and when I try to use it in Illustrator, I only see Hairline. Anyone else encounter this problem? Both are in my Fonts folder on my PC.

July 29, 2011

36. Lise:

Lovely work! I’m in love with it.

August 3, 2011

37. Damien Koh:

Thanks for the font! Just what I needed for my comic set in 1937.

August 16, 2011

38. AK:

As others have said repeatedly, the “Geomancy – Hairline.otf” file is actually Extra Bold when opened. So the zip contains two versions of the Extra Bold under two names, but DOES NOT CONTAIN A FILE FOR HAIRLINE.

Has this been done purposefully? Since the issue still hasn’t been addressed, it seems that the author wants to keep it that way.

The pair are so spectaular, I don’t see the use in not having both available.

August 19, 2011

39. Andy:

Im having the same issue as multiple unanswered questions in here: ive installed both fonts, but only “hairline” is showing up in my programs. Is there a solution?

September 10, 2011

40. Marie:

I’m having the same issue as others. Only the Extra Bold font appears after installing. Any resolution to this problem? I’d love to use the fonts.

September 21, 2011

I really love this font- I think I have the project for it too. Thanks.

September 25, 2011

Oohh! the font is very beautifull, good job!

November 24, 2011

43. Noah Stepro:

I am also having the same problem – I want to use the fonts overlapping but photoshop only shows me the bold, not the hairline…please tell me what I am doing wrong?

January 5, 2012

44. WicCaesar:

Wooow!!! Loved this one!

January 21, 2012

45. Ioana:

Same problem with the fonts here. I downloaded the zip, both Geomancy Bold and Hairline are in the archive. When i install them though, ps shows me only the bold. The hairline doesn’t show up in the windows fonts folder either, but when i try to reinstall it, a dialog tells me it’s already there. Any solutions? I would really love to be use them both!

February 23, 2012

46. Valeria:

Thank you very much for this beautiful typeface.

February 26, 2012

47. Natasha:

Hi, Ioana,

I sent you an e-mail with the updated file. You shouldn’t have that problem again.

February 27, 2012

48. Eunkyoung Kim:

That is a great font! Thank you~!!

April 24, 2012

49. Kelly:

Natasha – I have fallen in love with this font and would like to use it commercially, Im not a graphic designer so I don’t know the protocol but I saw the above comments of donate for the commercial privileged and would like to donate is that still an option to use this for commercial purposes? I can email you my product after Im done – its for an art walk.

May 5, 2012

50. Chris:

Natasha, I have the same common problem as the others. It seems that whichever version of Geomancy is installed first, the second one morphs into it when installed. You emailed Loana an updated file…does this fix the issue, and if so can you send it to me as well? Thanks!!!

July 6, 2012

52. jonalynn:

Hi, Natasha!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful fonts! I’m also having the same issue when installing the fonts. Both files are showing up as Geomancy Bold. Am I doing something wrong?

Again, thanks for letting us use the gorgeous font!

November 19, 2012

53. Snowflake:

Very nice done, but it is not compatible with my native language (ÆØÅ).

December 13, 2012

Very, very nice font! Thank you!
