Cheers for downloading this font, please post a comment to tell me what you think.

The font does not currently include any numbers or many symbols (as they did not appear on any book covers) but if there is enough demand I may put out an updated version at a later date.

Please do not re-host this font on your own site, but please do spread the word and link back here – that would be much appreciated! Thanks.

    This is the best thing ever to happen to fonts!

  2. Chirox says:

    By the way, would you happen to know the name of the more modern font used on some of the more recent dune books?
    like this…

    Beautiful font. . is there also a font available with blood splattering on it? Even though the Iduali would be horrified by the waste of moisture resulting from such a sloppy killing it still makes for a cool effect.

    Chirox: Update: It’s one called Benguiat – great font… shame about the books :)

    arnoldo: Blood spatters on a case-by-case basis and by special request only…

    Cheers everyone!

    Thanks for the great font! I also quite like the font used in the poster:

    If anyone knows this font already exists, please tell us the name…or go create it! Thanks.

    Found your site via io9. Love the font. It fills my heart with glee.

  11. I just packaged this font for Arch Linux, so now users can get it as part of the system.

    Don’t worry, this doesn’t involve hosting the font anywhere else, it will be downloaded from your own server.

    The package name is ttf-orthodox-herbertarian

      Sounds cool, Roberto! :)

      Thanks for the comments! The download counter isn’t displaying properly but the admin panel says the font has been downloaded 700 times – that’s +250 since io9 :D

    Awesome job. I thought I was going to have to do this myself. Thanks so much for making it available!

    I’m using this for my next tattoo. Amazing and awesome! Thank you!

    Nice one! If you haven’t seen it already, at least four numbers can be found on the 1978 Dune Calendar -
    …and I suppose they might serve as a reference to how the other numbers might be styled as well.
