Shackleton is a nostalgic font family imbued with charm and built for adventure.
Born in the Victorian era in the United Kingdom, Sir Ernest Shackleton was a polar explorer whose zenith came as the gilded age of his youth faded into the shadows of the 20th century. In August 1914, the Great War was just beginning, a cataclysm that dragged humanity kicking and screaming into the modern age. That same month, Shackleton and a crew of 27 men embarked on what would become one of the greatest, most heroic adventures of our time, the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition.
The Shackleton font family is inspired by the intrepid life and indomitable spirit of this polar pioneer. Its princely flared serifs preserve the gilded shards of the Victorian aesthetic, yet like its pioneering namesake, Shackleton is built to withstand the many rigors of an ever changing world.
