Type Style: Condensed, Antique Serif
Suited For: Display
X-Factor: Two Styles (Lines and Solid, with Italic alternates)
Like Bourbon, Moonshiner is a condensed display typeface inspired by serifs from whiskey bottles and old packaging. The letters play well with subtle, distressed textures or a nice, good-ole script. If you like this font, I would definitely grab Bourbon to access the rough styles, which work best in large sizes with anti-aliasing set to “Smooth.” According to Mattox:
One night, the “Regular” style decided to get into a bar fight and ended up looking “Rough” with a more printed, aged feel. Bourbon Rough works great in larger sizes and with anti-aliasing set to “Smooth.”
There are two styles included, a lined version and solid type. These work really well when layered to create that old-fashioned style.
Free for commercial and personal use. You may not create typefaces from Moonshiner and cannot sell the typeface in any way.
