Nican Mopohua Regular Font – Old Mexican Paranormal Typography

This curated old Mexican font was the first time I saw the Church of Mexico printed the Nican Mopohua story in 1570 in the Nahuatl language. The document is kept in the National Library of Mexico. The Nican Mopohua is the story of the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe to the indigenous Mexican Juan Diego in Tepeyacac in 1531. More information about the Nican Mopohua Huei Tlamahuiçoltica, you can read it here.

Although not a horror font I call it a paranormal font because it narrates a supernatural event and it really has a peculiar Halloween style. The original font might be a variation of the Caslon typeface but it does not match the J, U and S letters. Also, a typical feature in the colonial Mexican typography is to find the U replaced by the letter V. So, instead of writing Guadalupe, we write Gvadalvpe.

Below is my prepared image with the Nican Mopohua Regular font and the modern prayer that is always included in the candles sold in the name of the Virgen of Guadalupe. A popular item among people who are their fans.
