Kingthings Pique'n'meex

I suspect that this steampunk fantasy title is graphical rather than font-based, but - just in case - might it be a font?


I immediately thought Kevin King. A look at some of his fonts will explain why. The font used was his Kingthings Pique'n'meex - about 4/5 of the way down the page.

Font or not, the letter-forms hiding under it remind me of Caslon 224 Bold

Thanks Mike! And I love that webpage - full of entertainment...

You are certainly welcome, James.

Don - While I appreciate your point - a poor choice by Mr. King to use an existing Caslon. - I can't imagine that any foundry, including ITC, would raise a hint of protest at this use of their font for this type of end result. The competitive sales value is zero.

Waitng for Hrant to appear ...
