As promised a few days ago, here’s a preview of our other imminent release. We’ve been contemplating some more ‘casual’ typeface designs for a while, and ‘Albion’s Marker No.1’ represents the first of them.
Think of Schoolboys trying to print ‘smartly’ in their exercise books. Think of the rough sketches of conceptual design, which can have more ‘charm’ than the finished product. Think of the charm of authentic hand lettering. All of those tropes are embodies in Albion’s Marker No.1.
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.
We thought it was time to revisit one of our earlier designs, with some new specimen pieces and a few old favourites re-presented.
Clementhorpe is inspired by the lettering on an early 20th century enamel advertisement-for chocolate. From the dozen or so hand drawn letters found in that source Greater Albion Typefounders have constructed a family of Roman faces for display and text work, with bold weights, an italic form as well as condensed, small capital and title forms, all preserving the fun of their inspiration.
Incidentally, one member of the Clementhorpe family is offered free of charge at Myfonts.
