Sir Richard Henry Bonnycastle (1791–1847) was an English officer and military engineer who served in the War of 1812 and ultimately settled in Canada. I stumbled upon copies of some of his charts and maps, became infatuated with the hand-lettered titles—and the result is the eponymous Bonnycastle.
The font has a bold weight and an italic style but is intended as a stylish standalone, evocative of its period in history. The fourth member of our Old Map Fonts collection, Bonnycastle might prove most useful as an eye-catching titling face on branding materials, event posters, book covers, presentation graphics, historical illustrations, and the like.
