Adobe Font Folio 11 preview


Quite some time ago I posted a brief look into some of the fonts included in Adobe Font Folio 11 collection. Too brief in fact. Included here is a wider sampling; including sans, serif, script and decorative fonts from the type library to whet your typographic whistle.

All typefaces included in the library come in OpenType format to suit whatever your system, 20 of which are showcased below. Some you’ll have seen, but with 2,300 typefaces included I’m sure plenty will be new.

  1. Thanks for the list! Very nice shortcut to find the best font folio fonts (rather than spending hours going through the collection!)


  2. No problem Mike,

    I’ve still got a few hours of sorting to go I would imagine, if I can find the time I’ll try and do another post with some more choice picks.

  3. Dear Andrew,

    Thank you for the samples of fonts available from Font folio 11. My query is that I can not see these fonts available for use in Photoshop. I thought Photoshop borrows its fonts from the Microsoft Windows font folder (which I have added and are seen), so how do I make Photoshop identify these fonts for use?

  4. Hello Jeffrey,

    You’re correct in your understanding that Photoshop ( and other Adobe software ) draws its typefaces from the Windows fonts folder.

    Font folio though is a separate product, I think you’ll find the vast majority of the fonts aren’t present in Windows or other Adobe programs and would need to be purchased separately.

  5. Hi Andrew,

    Did you create these type specs? I’m interested in using some of them.


  6. Hi Katie,

    The general layout was something I originally saw on Wikipedia, but yes, I created these ones. Let me know what you’re looking to do and if I can be of help.

  7. Dear Andrew,

    I am a novice in Typography but I have a flair for fonts. Can you please suggest for me some websites where I can learn more about typography and one moreover, can you please tell me how to use Adobe Font Folio 11?

    It would be of great help if you extend some of your expertise.

    And yes, I have copied the list of fonts you discussed here. I just fell in love with them.


  8. Hi Bhargav, is a great website for type, definitely one worth checking out.

    Font Folio itself is just a collection of fonts to be installed on your system and used in your design programs as you would any other font. You don’t actually use it, per se.

    Hope that helps.
