IHOF, Comicraft, Norwegian Fonts


Entertain and embellish with the typefaces of IHOF, Comicraft, and Norwegian Fonts. We are known for workhorse text and corporate typefaces, but these new collections offer something slightly different from standard fare, proving that FontShop is your source for decorative and novelty typefaces, too.



International House of Fonts (IHOF), a division of P22, is a type boutique that showcases distinctive type designs and designers from around the world. The IHOF collection embodies a sensitivity towards historical lettering while introducing unique and contemporary typefaces.
