Antiquarian

AntiquarianThe titles struck me as handsome—the titles and captions and place labels on a page I have of Henri Abraham Chatelain’s Atlas Historique. I’d already modeled Antiquarian Scribe after the neat, slanted penmanship used in the body text of Chatelain’s famous old world atlas; now I felt compelled also to digitize this legible roman hand-lettering. The letterforms are strong and rugged. They’ve got a certain deft, organic character. A personality. I can’t fully explain it. But this antique alphabet seems suitable for many applications. Antiquarian is a full-featured font that works well with Antiquarian Scribe. OpenType features include true small caps, numerous ligatures, several distinctive cartographic ornaments, Greek alphabets, and full Latin support. US$39.
