Adantine offers the opportunity to bring Victorian Elegance and Character to modern design work. It is inspired by the hand-lettered captions often seen on old sepia-toned postcards, but also distilles some of its spirit from 19th century advertising cuts. Adantine is offered in regular and text faces, as well as all and small Capitals forms with purpose made swashed capitals, and in a decorative embossed form. It can be used to set small amounts of text, as well as for headings and display purposes. Adantine offers the chance to bring steam-age elegance to present day design projects.
Penguin Books’ design for the trade paperback edition of Felix Palma’s “The Winds of Time” makes us of our Adantine and Arkwright typeface families. Rather more of both are to be seen on the back cover and spine! As ever, it’s wonderful to see our typefaces out there ‘in the wild’.
