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.
Kinver owes it’s inspiration to the masthead of a 19th century handbill. It is designed to particularly complement our extensive ‘Imperial Granum’ typeface family. Bring the spirit of Victorian flair to your next design project!
Bonlivet is an all capitals display face, which starts from Roman letter forms and pushes them into wild decorative extravagance. There is a somewhat early 20th century feel to this, but really it’s just a bit of good fun, with a hint of elegance thrown in.
Our latest two releases have just launched on Fontspring.
Bertolessi, is a Roman face made fun, with a healthy dose of filigree curves thrown into the mix. It’s an ideal compliment to our extensive Bertoni family, but can be used anywhere a bit of humour and flair is required. Get with the curls!
Tulk’s Victorian Banner revives the tradition of ‘Banner’ typefaces-lettering within their own lozenge or cartouche, that made such an appealing feature in many old type foundries catalogues. Tulk’s Victorian Banner makes a wonderful feature of lettering in any piece of period inspired design. It compliments our recent Fitzgerald space especially well, but can be used alongside any typeface of your choice where you want to bring a touch of period flamboyance.
