Art Deco Font ideas
0

Hi

My friend has asked me to put together her wedding invites using an 'art deco' inspired font. Has anyone got any ideas? Readability seems to be a problem with a lot of them.

Shrifteen is a favourite at the moment, but worried about readability. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

This style is more Art Nouveau than Art Deco, btw.

Or maybe more Arts & Crafts than either!

I would look over P22's offerings. Click here

then click Art Style, then Arts & Crafts.

(Or click Art Deco if that is indeed what you are looking for!)

Scriptorium has several Art Nouveau and Arts & Craft typefaces.
(At present Firefox is reporting their site as malware, but you can find them at MyFonts)
