Atheist bus font

Last week was taken up by a happy event: Ms Perfect and I moved into our new home. That meant getting all the furniture in, tracking down the right hedge trimmer (so as not to obscure the white picket fence), and getting the utilities hooked up. Now the Internet Drought is over, and I'm back online.

We here at Good Reason like to keep up with everything typographical, so when we found the Atheist Bus typeface, it was too good not to share. Here it is: Dirty Headline, the very same font used on atheist buses in England (and atheist t-shirts elsewhere), downloadable for free thanks to

  2. Hey, thanks for posting this.

    I'm working on the bus campaign for Argentina and thanks to your posting I finally have the right font for the job.

    Oh yeah.

    Atheist buses? Huh. Didn't know that one? Wonder if they licensed [the font is free only for non-public use]? (and if the didn't, wonder if I'm going to bother to check? No, no I am not, because I like the bus) :)

  4. Obi-Wan, do be sure and license, m'kay?

  5. Thank you, thank you!

    Now I can make my own messages.

  6. Thanks a bunch! I'm so making my own atheist shirts now! :)
