Clementine Font: A bit of Victoriana whimsy from Ted Staunton

by Fred Showker

21st Annual Fall Fonts Festival We've talked about P22 more than we really should over the years, but this new one from Ted Staunton is too nice to ignore. We often talk about decorative fonts leading us to different times, moods and emotions -- well Clementine does just that!

This set of two fonts is heavily inspired by a variety of 19th Century faces without being a direct revival of any one in particular. illustration_font

Undulating curves, swirly terminals and bifurcated semi-serifs give these faces plenty of character. Both fonts include f ligatures and ct/st ligatures.

Clementine Curly includes a full set of alternate curly caps as opentype alternates making it essentially a bonus font within a font! type and lettering fonts festival
