What is the Excelsior® font?

Six years after the introduction of Ionic No.5, Griffith removed any remaining awkwardness to produce at Linotype Excelsior, which many believe to be the best newspaper text face of all time. It has retained its popularity in Europe, where newspaper columns are wide. Opticon and Paragon are slightly heavier and slightly lighter versions designed for newspapers that deliberately underink to favor halftones, or overink to favor text and headlines.

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

You won't be able to find Excelsior® as a free download, so I suggest that you just go ahead and pay for it and download Excelsior® 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 Excelsior® 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 Excelsior® 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. :)
