PALIMPSEST is an experimental font combining the letterforms of a traditional blackletter font with the texture of a Benday or halftone dot screen. Modern + Medieval. Pop + Parchment. At first glance it appears somewhat blurred or faded but is very cleanly rendered from vector drawings for smooth edges at any size. (Bigger is better.)

Includes upper and lowercase, numbers, punctuation, and international characters.

PALIMPSEST comes in four weights: Light, Regular, Dark, and Black, which can be mixed and matched for interesting effects. The graphics above show only the Regular weight; at left are all four for comparison.
