Greater Albion has just released three new families on Myfonts.com.

Jonquin was inspired by some hand lettering seen on a World -War One recruiting poster. It’s a family of three faces for display work and headings designed to be used readily as an 'All-Capitals' face as well as in upper and lower case format. Regular and bold weights are offered, as well as an even more decorative incised form. The whole family is ideally suited for poster and advertising work, as well as book and record covers and period themed signage.

Luscombe is a boisterous and lively display face, recalling the shaded and outlined faced much beloved of 1920s poster and advertising artists, while offering a regularity of outline that those faces often did not achieve. Itís ideal for poster and display work, or for signage with a subtle period feel. Mix the two faces to add emphasis where it’s needed.

Zenia, offered in regular and bold weights is a homage to the streamline era of the later 1930s. It’s a distinctive display family, glyphic yet still intuitive and easy to read. Use it anywhere you want that 30’s streamlined feel, or perhaps in science fiction inspired work particularly those that have a ‘past inspired future’ feel...

Grace, Space, Pace -- that was a Jaguar slogan.

I've never owned a Jag, except for this when I was ten:

(Pardon me for straying off topic.)

I like the Zenia tri-line.
It does have a kind of Brazil (the movie) vibe.
Am I mistaken, or is this a departure from your usual fare?
It could be set in a specimen with more discretion, letterspaced, say, as a wordmark.

Nick - Zenia is a bit of a departure from m usual themes, though I''ve done a couple of other designs with a 30's inspired theme. Glad you like it anyway.

Sometime I want to put in the effort to make up a proper specimen books of all my typeface families- the samples here are really just that, quick samples.
