Fonts like Bantjes' Restraint
0

Can anyone recommend fonts that are similar to Marian Bantjes' Restraint? In other words, fonts with characters that lock together and build pretty ornamental patterns and borders? Thanks!

Why not use Restraint? Or, was your question “Is there a free font…?”

I can only think of these two:

http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/jhische/snowflake/
http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/sudtipos/brownstone-sans/

These both make borders and lock together (Brownstone has a pile of ligatures). However, they aren't like Restraint at all!

They don't have to be free—I'm just looking for some alternatives that don't feel quite so "Marian Bantjes" but have a relatively similar effect.
