The Harry Potter logo Evolution
The logo we all know today was introduced in 1997 and was the initial badge, created for Harry Potter.
What font does Harry Potter use in their logo?
Different fonts were used on the Harry Potter book covers, for its chapter title and elsewhere. The lettering used for the book title is very similar to a typeface called Hocus Pocus, which comes in four styles and each with a complete character set. The chapter titles and page numbers, a font called Able by Marcus Burlile resembles their lettering. For the handwriting of Rubeus Hagrid, it resembles Felt Tip Roman by Mark Simonson. All mentioned above are commercial fonts.
But there are free alternatives to them. For the book title, you can use Harry P font by Phoenix Phonts instead; For Chapter titles, Lumos and for the Hagrid lettering you can use Hagrid Font. You can download this fonts for free.
