Scriptorium Fonts was a type foundry based in Austin, Texas, founded in 1992 by game designer, editor and historian Dave Nalle. The type foundry had three other type designers, these included: Michael Scarpitti, Peter Nevins and Kevin Andrew Murphy.[1]

In 2005, Scriptorium Fonts supported the fundraising efforts for Hurricane Katrina relief by selling three New Orleans-themed fonts (Guede, Ironworks and Veve) to three different Louisiana charities.[2] Recently their fonts have been prominently featured in the Spiderwick books and film.[3]

The Windlass font was used on the covers of the Percy Jackson book series by Rick Riordan as well as the Percy Jackson and the Olympians film.[4]

The Folkard font is used for the main heading font in World of Warcraft and also in the Disney Fairies game series.[5]

The Valdemar font is featured on the covers of all of Mark Chadbourn's fantasy novel series including Age of Misrule.[6]

As of 2023, the website is no longer available.
