Greater Albion Typefounders is a small, independent digital type foundry based in Perth, Western Australia that creates and markets fonts for personal and commercial use. It was founded in 2008. The name reflects the 19th century design ethos of the founder, Paul Lloyd. [1] [2] [3] [4]

Paul Lloyd had previously created a large number of free fonts, mostly in 19th century revival style,[5] in which style he continues to design for Greater Albion but within this ethos he has moved the emphasis to creating more commercial, polished works with large character sets and extensive use of Opentype substitution features.
