Captain Edward, an all-caps display serif

Liked Captain Edward (Simple Type Co.)

Inspired by the pirates of the Atlantic, Captain Edward is an all-caps display serif. Named after Captain Edward Teach—otherwise known as Blackbeard. The font takes cues from Cooper Black’s lighter-weight siblings as well as inspiration from the rugged New England coast…

I love the look of an all-caps heading, even though it’s probably not great for readability. (I love small caps even more.)

This one’s got a good vibe. And $20 for a desktop + web license is pretty affordable.
