An Edwardian era font

AlexGMac's picture

I'm looking for a font from (or derived from) the Edwardian era - (Not the font, 'Edwardian' or Edwardian Script)
It must be...
Legible on HD res screen for relatively quick reading
Hint at Elegance and Romance without being overtly so
It could be either...
A font from that era
or...
A contemporary interpretation derived from signage or calligraphy of the era.
Any advice would be gratefully received,
Thanks
Alex

Thanks - all very useful - anyone have any thoughts on a contemporary interpretation? I saw this beautiful font Zadie which was 'inspired by Edwardian railings surrounding the Royal Army Medical College in London ' by A2/SW/HK.

Zadie may be “inspired by Edwardian railings surrounding the Royal Army Medical College in London,” but it certainly wasn’t inspired by Edwardian letterforms. It's certainly whimsical, but it falls into illegibility pretty quickly at smaller sizes…IMHO.
