all caps

Setting an all-caps book title

Forums: 

Hello,

I'm setting some text about a book that has a title with a word in all caps (example: UNTOLD: The Story Not Told). What is the best way to do this? My thoughts are that in headings it would be all caps just like the above, but in text UNTOLD would be U[smallcaps]ntold[/smallcaps] (that is, Untold with the "ntold" part in small caps, mixing the case). I also considered just ignoring the all-caps aspect in the text (referring to it as "Untold: The Story Not Told" in the text, but I'm not sure I can get away with that.

Thanks for your help!

Two New Families Released

Forums: 

Greater Albion have jusst released two new families through Fontspring and Myfonts:

Corsham:
Corsham was inspired by traditional stonemason's engraved lettering designs. Designed to be used alone, or in combination with our Corton family, ithas wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Four faces are offered-regular bold and black weights as well as a condensed form. All faces include a range of Opentype features, including ligatures and old-style numerals. The Corsham faces merge 'olde-worlde' charm with fun character, yet remaining clear and legible for text use.

Metropole:

Good font for caps (post/zip codes) on formal invitation

Any suggestions for a good font to use on formal invitations for the sections requiring all caps (for example, post/zip codes) where the main body of the text is set in a script - such as Bickham Script - in order to avoid this (see image)?

Any help gratefully received!

Thanks

Pete

All Caps, Techy, Sporty, Spacey Font - Untitled

Forums: 

No name for this bugger yet. It's my first attempt at creating a full alphabet plus punctuation for an actual font release! Inspiration came from a custom logotype I created that was not commissioned, it's a great excuse to dive into FontLab and see what it's all about. This will be an all caps display font, released at some point this year. Here is a screenshot of the regular and outline versions. I've attached a PDF for closer inspection.

Now for Something Completely Different

Forums: 

Remember those 1970s science fiction dramas which had such charming 'futuristic' sets and backdrops? Remember the intriguing 'future' lettering and signage the set designers would devise-often coupled with interesting 'futuristic' spellings? Movella, Greater Albion's latest release, is something of a new departure for us and is a family of three typefaces inspired by that design ethos. The three faces- regular, italic and the 3d solid form - are all capitals faces which combine a feeling of 'retro-futuristic' design with easy legibility.

Movella can now be found on Myfonts and Fontspring. Here'a sample of it in action:

Greater Albion Launches Corton

Forums: 

Greater Albion Typefounders has just launched 'Corton' a pair of display Roman small capitals faces.

Corton was inspired by the traditional lettering on a gravestone in an English village. While that might sound a rather solemn beginning, Corton has wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Two faces are offered-regular and titular. Between them they are ideal signage and display faces, merging 'olde-worlde' charm and fun character.

Corton is currently available through Myfonts, and is offered at a 35% introductory discount.

New Font: Ciseaux Matisse

Ciseaux Matisse is a font family with 4 styles inspired by Henri Matisse's Drawing with scissors.

The Cut-Out style is a paper-cutout, boxed is the paper background. Both Linear and Boxed Linear have no bezier handles so they are more aggressive.

As drawing with scissors implies, all characters are cut by hand. With only uppercase letters, this font is designed for editorial use.
