Remember the time when all of web and print media had the entire content in plain serif or sans serif? The most you could get was the cursive version of the same fonts. Well, over the years, with the growth of online community, a lot of typefaces are now available for download which don’t particularly fall in the categories of script or cursive, serif or sans serif type. And these typefaces are referred to as Novelty Classic Fonts.
