Pendula, a new release

Forums: 

Pendula™ is an adaptation of Pittorseques Droites (Scenic Casual) found in the circa 1924 specimen book of La Fonderie Typographique Francaise. Changes to a very small number of the original characters were made to make the typeface work better with more languages, as well as for aesthetic reasons. A newly designed Cyrillic character set was added to make the design even more useful, enlarging the character set from the basic Latin set to over 650 glyphs covering seven languages. Pendula™ also includes tabular and proportional number sets plus a bonus set of over thirty monetary symbols. Other international symbols were included too. It is a wonderfully casual and flexible design, usable in many situations.

Chefscript Typeface - Buy licenses at MyFont
Chef Script is an experimental font designed by Carlos Fabian Camargo G. Its fantasy design contains 1463 glyphs to compose words, phrases and short messages on small and large sizes. The idea was born in a sketchbook that was perfected again by hand and achieving "non-neutral drawings" on tracing paper. With bezier digitization the empty and full parts of letters appeared with soft and eloquent curves as calligraphic result produces optimal readability.

The Spargo family of six typefaces has just released on Myfonts.com and on Fontspring.

Spargo is inspired by 20s and 30s American typefaces, often seen on share certificates and other securities. We thought it was time to bring a touch of transatlantic boom and ebullience to our portfolio of typefaces, not to mention a healthy dose of Roaring 20s spirit. Spargo is the result, offered in six all capitals display typefaces.

Here are speciments of the six faces...

Greater Albion Launches Flapper

Forums: 

Greater Albion has just launched Flapper, a family of four faces on Fontspring and Myfonts.com.

Flapper is family which embodies a great deal of fun and more than a little spirit of the roaring 20s. If ever a set of typefaces could dance a high kicking Charleston, these are they. Flapper is offered in regular, condensed, oblique and outline forms, and they all bring a great deal of fun and life wherever they are used. The Flapper family (yes, think of one of those dancing 20s girls with a long string of pearls...) is ideal for casual heading, bold captions, poster work and anywhere else a sense of fun is required.
