The nine member Gondolieri family is now available for purchase from Myfonts and Fontspring.
The design of Gondolieri has its origins in an experiment to combine aspects of Didone and Tuscan typefaces. The result has a continental ‘Italianate‘ feel. If you wonder what lies behind the name, just look at the lower case ‘f’…definite overtones of a Venetian Gondola here, and throughout the design. Gondolieri is offered in regular and bold weights, as well as a simplified form for smaller text use. All of these are available in three widths. The Gondolieri family has a lovely Didone, ‘Belle Epoch’ feel for use in design, posters, book covers and so forth. An extensive range of Opentype features, including ligatures and terminal forms is included in the regular and bold faces.
We like to regard Bronzetti, which we’ve been developing in house for some time as a forthcoming typographic revolution-Bronzetti has been a long term project for Greater Albion Typefounders, aimed at filling a large gap in the range of typefaces available today. The Bronzetti family of 22 text typefaces combines modern requirements for legibility and readability with the charm of traditional Roman faces in the spirit of those carefully constructed by small scale quality foundries such as the Kelmscott and Vale presses. In short, Bronzetti is traditional letterpress meets modern publishing, offering a real opportunity to make your material stand out from today’s ‘run of the mill’ crowd. The range of typefaces on offer includes five widths of type, as well as small capitals and italic forms and regular and bold weights. Try out Bronzetti today, make your work stand out from the crowd and join the revolution!
Myfonts offers extensive previewing facilities for you to try Bronzetti out. Meanwhile here’s a small sampling of the 22 typefaces in action.
The Doncaster family of seven fonts has launched on Fontspring. The family comprises seven faces- Regular, Italic, Embossed, Incised, Small capitals, Small Capitals Embossed and Small Capitals Incised. Doncaster is a bold display face which emphasises legibility and clarity, but which combines those qualities with a distinctive flair. The designs have a timeless quality, making them equally at home today or even in Victorian inspired design work. All of the faces are ideal for poster work, signage or for really eye-catching but not ostentatious headings and titles.
We’ve just dispatched Doncaster to our resellers, so we expect it to be available after the Easter holidays. Here’s a ‘hypothetical’ poster showing off some of the family. Why can’t modern buses have that sort of charm?
