Inspired by my current reading of Harry Potter and the infamous store Flourish and Blotts, I have named the typeface Ink & Blotts.
If you used a little too much ink on a paper, it would flow out in a similar way to how this typeface bulges around the edges. Think classic, think handmade.
It all started a little spontaneous. I had just made a new word for my side project Wrds and I thought it was so nice that before I knew it I had made an entire set of letters.
Somewhere along the path I decided I would go all the way, so I looked for a program, and found Glyphs to be the most attractive program, in every way.
So I did not spend too much time researching alternatives (a little of course), but instead spent that time learning the program. As usual I was instantly frustrated with it, since it didn’t act exactly like Photoshop and Illustrator, but very soon I was into it, and I now love it.
Glyphs all the way.
Ink & Blotts
The typeface has 233 glyphs, which means it contains the Basic Latin and Western European typesets. You can see all the characters included, and test drive the font here.
I decided to release it as part of Wrds, and sell it for $1.
