“RPG Gothic” is a 262-page catalog of free fantasy fonts sourced from the internet by artist Kara Gut. Fonts are highlighted by faux-pangrams—bits of text clipped from forums, comment sections, and stock-image descriptions under the search query of “fantasy”. “RPG Gothic” reimagines the font catalog as an appropriated internet archive.
Kara Gut is a multidisciplinary artist whose primary focus is image-based, digital media. Her work investigates the new shape of human intimacy formed by internet lifestyle, constructed detachment from reality, and the power dynamics of the virtual. She received an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2016. Kara currently lives and works in Columbus, Ohio.
