Born as Theodor Seuss Geisel on March 2, 1904, the beloved author of popular children’s books such as Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, The Lorax, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, lived an interesting life as fascinating as his books.
His inspiration came from everywhere. His knowledge of animals for instance, came from when his father was superintendent of Forest Park in Springfield, Massachusetts. McElligot’s Pool contained an inside joke from when he and his father had a dull fishing trip and bought trout from the Deegel Hatchery. And – one of his most prized possessions was a fossilized dinosaur footprint, a gift from his father.
Since the first book he published in 1937, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, his works continue to captivate not just kids, but kids at heart today. It’s no wonder people, especially designers, want to copy the playful typography from his books onto their works.
A good bet would be Doctor Soos, designed by Sean Trowbridge. Another contender would be Grinched by Sharkshock. Other playful Dr. Seuss fonts can be found on free-fonts.com. Meanwhile, Dr. Seuss font pack that contains an alternative and outline version is available at Free Fonts Family.
