This piece showcases my newest addition to my typeface collection called just simply “Italics”. This is a free flowing italic typeface that is based on inspiration from various calligraphers, most notably Luca Barcellona. This elegant lettering style is a departure from my gothic scripts, but works well in this case against the gothic uncial script. A calligraphy I have been learning from explained to me that layout is more important than the actual characters themselves and I am gaining an appreciation of this quickly.
The quote is actually from myself. Lately I have been invested in learning and improving my calligraphy skills, but while doing so I have found it to be a completely relaxing experience — one that is truly good for the soul.
This typeface is over 125 high resolution bitmap lowercase characters that work well together and are complimented from the contemporary capitals that I created a month or so ago. Several variations of each letter have been prepared. This typeface is suitable for high resolution printing.
If you are interested in any of these typefaces or would like to develop a font let me know. I will be rolling out a few more typefaces over the next few weeks.
