Here’s a font collection cartographers and those in GIS might want to download for future use.  StateFace is a sets of icons for the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and one showing the continental United States.  The shapes have been simplified to make them easily usable for instances where small type is needed.  The font set has optimized it for high-resolution displays (such as Apple’s Retina).

Created by nonprofit news source, ProPublica, the source shapefiles used to create StateFace were adapted from Natural Earth data.

To download the font collection visit ProRepublica’s github page.
