Font formats

The fonts are all in the Open Type (.otf) format, suitable for use on both Macintosh and PC. The minimum necessary system requirements are: 

Minimum system requirements for Macintosh
— Macintosh with PowerPC processor
— Mac OS 8.6 through Mac OS 9.2, or Mac OS X
— ATM® Light 4.6 (4.6.2 for Mac OS X classic)
— ATM updater to 4.6.1a/4.6.2a, if using AdobePS 8.8 or later
— If using a PostScript printer, the latest AdobePS printer driver is recommended
— 16 MB of RAM (32 MB recommended)

Mac OS X provides native support for OpenType CFF fonts (as well as PostScript Type 1 fonts), and does not require ATM Light for use with native and carbon applications. Applications running in classic mode in Mac OS X still require ATM Light. 

Minimum system requirements for Windows
— PC using a Pentium processor
— Microsoft Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista
— ATM Light 4.1 (not required for Windows 2000, Windows XP. Incompatible with Windows Vista)

If using a PostScript printer on Windows 95/98/ME, AdobePS printer driver 4.3 or later is recommended.

If using a PostScript printer on Windows NT4, adobePS printer driver 5.1.2 or later is recommend 16 MB of RAM (32 MB recommended).

Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista provide native support for OpenType CFF fonts (as well as PostScript Type 1 fonts in GDI applications) and do not require ATM Light or the adobe PS printer driver. 

I’ve kept prices low in the hope that fellow designers will be encouraged to try them out.

Equivalent webfonts (@font-face kits that are pre-packaged and include .eot, .svg, .ttf, .woff and .woff2 formats for all browsers) are also available for each font.

The Talbot Type Font License is the standard issue kind of license. It looks a bit long, is really quite boring, but probably necessary for both you and I — better safe than sorry.

The fonts are also available for the same price, from several of the larger distributors, but if it makes no difference to you then I’d be thrilled if you bought them here from the Talbot Type website, given that the distributors keep half the sale price.

The various licensing agreements for Talbot Type fonts can be seen below, there are six types of license to cover any eventuality, if your needs are not covered for any reason, then please contact Talbot Type.

When purchasing a font, having made the payment, the relevant font files will be emailed to you by return.
