Loxley is a blackletter and art nouveau typeface released by Canada Type.

Drawn soon prior to Jim Rimmer's death in 2010, Loxley was created to be utilized in a fine press edition of the folklore story of Robin Hood. It was called after the pointed out birth place of the story's classic hero.

Loxley's shapes were inspired the very same early Roman faces (such as Subiaco from the late 1400s) that influenced Frederick Goudy's Aries, Franciscan and Goudry Thirty types. It shows the preculiarities of Jim's left-handed calligraphy, along with his outside-the-box thinking with exit strokes and serif variations.

Loxley was remastered for the most recent technologies in 2013. Now it includes a character set of over 450 glyphs, including a lot of stylistic alternates, a complete compliment of f-ligatures, a Th-ligature, standard fractions, ordinals, a long s for historic setting, comprehensive class-based kerning, and extended Latin language support.

20% of this typeface's profits will be donated to the Canada Type Scholarship Fund, supporting higher typography education in Canada.
