This week’s showcase presents the Imperial Granum family.
Imperial Granum is a family of six typefaces intended primarily as a Roman Title and lettering face, combining formality and dignity with a delightful touch of ‘Arts and Crafts’ like hand drawn design. The regular form of Imperial Granum (which is inspired by a beautifully hand-lettered early 20th century food advertisement) offers two sizes of capitals, in order to provide true ‘small-capitals‘ lettering. Similarly, the Ornamental form consists exclusively of capitals and is designed to be able to mix and match with the regular form. The miniscule form can, of course, be used in its own right, but is primarily intended to complement the regular and ornamental forms. All three faces are offered in regular and bold weights.
This week we’ve given our showcase a vintage inspired travel theme, so here we go travelling with Imperial Granum for company. We start out with a trip to Cairo in a lovely pre-war biplane airliner, and then make a couple of stops in Italy.
