Dezcom is proud to announce the release of a new typeface. Dez Petranian is a story-telling fantasy friendly family of fonts. It is a warm face that looks like the spoken word, perfect for tall tails, fantasy-world adventure books, creative writing, and poetry. Dez Petranian includes multiple language support, nearly 1,200 glyphs, stylistic sets, and many alternates. Think of it as a warm reminder of real story writing
Embossanova was inspired by Bodoni and Lubalin Graph, an unlikely pairing says Stephen Boss, the type designer designer and owner of the digital type foundry Emboss Fonts.
Initially the design started off as a rather elongated geometric serif typeface but after the renderings were digitized, the process took on a life of its own. The capital S became the key character, setting the tone for the entire set of glyphs.
The typeface has received very positive feedback, here is a tweet from fonts.com: @fontscom Check out Embossanova, a wonderful
