GUEST,ClaireBear Northumbrian Typography? (26) RE: Northumbrian Typography? 01 Mar 06


From today's batch (from the same site), I like "Gaeilge 1 normal" which is rather like American uncial but with "caps" -- really enlarged versions of the lowercase letters -- and better/more interesting diacriticals, to my mind.

Also "Martel" is clearly uncial in nature, though rather heavy.

I'm afraid I find "PR Celtic narrow" very hard to read and not actually very historical in feel, but you know what you want. You might want to look at "PR Unical Alternate Capitals TTF" on that same site, though, for another take on a handlettered look that's somewhat easier to read.
