I'm a big fan of fonts. Whenever I start a new project, I will choose a specific font for chapter headings and the like, even though that font will probably never be used in the final published product.
"Why would you do this?" you might ask. Well it's all part of creating the right mood and atmosphere for a piece of writing.
Whilst searching for Battle of Hastings fonts the other day, I stumbled across these fonts that were Inspired by Antiquity. If you like fonts I think you might like these too. Enjoy.
