Twelve Steampunk Fonts




I got a new computer and realized I needed to go download all my fonts again.  So while I was doing that I put together a collection of steampunk fonts.  These are all free fonts.

My criteria for choosing a font were: 1. I like it, 2. It feels steampunky to me, 3. It's not just a version of script (because there are a million of those), 4. It's not primarily goth instead of steampunk, 5. It's easy to read, 6. It's not a version of some well-known title text.

So this list is by no means complete, just some cool fonts that I've used in the past or that I found with some quick browsing.

Time to Get a Watch
This is the most obviously steampunk and the least practical font here.  But I couldn't NOT include it.

1942 Report
A nice distressed typewriter font.

Ringmaster
I know I have several Circus style fonts on here, but they were too cool to pass up.










Ornatique
This is my favorite out of all of these, and the font I used on my business cards.

Bees Antique Handwriting
Yes, it's a script, but I think it would be really great for signatures on documents and the like.

    1. WEIRD. How did I not notice that? And how did I manage to leave out the S in every single one? *is puzzled*

    1. Sorry, I'm pretty much Mac illiterate. Is there a location things usually download to? On Windows there's a folder called Fonts that you need to put the files in to install them.

  10. Thank you for sharing this collection. I am designing a steampunk article for the Victorian Ladies Society about the Victorian connection to this fascinating style of fashion and artistic expression, all influenced by Victorian authors Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. Thanks!!!
