What is the Dair® font?

Designer: Carl Dair
Revived by: Nick Shinn
A restoration of the first Canadian-designed typeface, which was completed by Carl Dair in 1967 and named after 16th century explorer Jacques Cartier, who mapped the Gulf of St. Lawrence in the 1530s.
The design is characterized by ascenders which tower dramatically above the capitals, by condensed italic minuscules inclined at a mere 6 degrees—and by its profound empathy for the core principles of the roman type form, originating over 500 years ago. More…
The revival was made from a printed example of the face, in the The Magic Fiddler, and Other Legends of French Canada by Claude Aubry, published in 1968.
Dair 67 and Dair 67 Italic will create facsimiles of the original fonts’ typesetting.
Dair and Dair Italic are fully-featured 21st century fonts.
Dair TBNT is precisely fitted and kerned for the Tight But Not Touching style of the 1970s (notably different from both Optical kerning and tracked-in Dair).

Most fonts on Jorgensen-Fonts.com are premium, which means that Dair® is not a free font.

You won't be able to find Dair® as a free download, so I suggest that you just go ahead and pay for it and download Dair® HERE. You can find some other great options here on Jorgensen-fonts.com as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Dair® are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.

Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!

It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.

If you really want Dair® and you want to truly own it the legal and safe way, then click here to visit the download and purchase page on MyFonts.com. Here you will be able to obtain the proper license. The designer and publisher deserves to be paid for their work, as they have put in the hours and the creativity to produce such an amazing font. Good luck with your purchase and future use of this font. :)
