New Releases 2 – Merrivale

Merrivale is now released on Myfonts.  Merrivale is an ideal example of the benefits of keeping ones eyes open- it was inspired by the gilt-finished raised lettering on a late Victorian shopsign in Melbourne, Australia. The family of seven faces include upper and lower case forms, small capitals, all capital forms, and flamboyant display forms.  Extensive Opentype features are incorporated. All faces are offered in incised forms inspired by the original lettering as well as in solid black filled forms.  Thsee typefaces are wonderful for signage where either a period air or a dignified but legible feel are required.  They also lend themselves to other display uses such as posters, book covers and so forth and are ideal for the title lines of certificates.

And Finally, Number 7…

We’re just putting the finishing touches to the final pair of typefaces in the Merrivale family, Merrivale No.7 and No.7 Solid.  Merrivale started several months ago, inspired by a sketch of some lettering on a vintage shop sign.  After a little final testing we’ll be sending the family off to our resellers along with other recent projects, Colliseo and Future Runes.

Meanwhile, here’s an example of the two faces in action…
