And Here’s the Completed ‘Fargo Tuscan’

Fargo_Tuscan_Poster_1

Fargo Tuscan is the first of seven typefaces exploring the decorative possibilities of the Tuscan letter form, all of which are releasing in 2017.  It’s the most European of the seven- it’s a Mid-Victorian inspired display face which would have been (and is) at home on either side of the Atlantic, unlike some of the others in this batch of Tuscan faces which are distinctly ‘trans-Atlantic’ (we know, that depends on your point of view but we are Greater ALBION Typefounders after all) in flavour. Fargo Tuscan is replete with decorative features, including Swash Capitals, alternate numeric forms and stylistic alternates ideal for the beginning and ending of words.

For that weathered look…

Saspirillo Fizz has been put through our (not quite) patented ‘fizzing’ process, in order to give it that weathered look of heavily used type.

Work Finished on a Range of Tuscan Typefaces…

… and here’s one of them.

We really went all out on this one – Sasparillo is an ‘extreme’ Tuscan face, with reversed emphasis, by which we mean the horizontals are far heavier than the verticals.
