I have a fair few addictions in life (coffee, Marmite, lipsticks, crime fiction, stationery – to name a few) high up on that list is fonts!
In the olden days I hand laid hot metal type and worked as a paste-up artist and I’ve maintained my love of a good typeface though all the intervening years. Happily it’s a lot easier these days to get you hands on top-notch typography – often for free -and I thought I’d start bigging up some of my favourites.
Janda Stylish Script is by Kimberly Geswein (who is a font dynamo) – free fonts can be very hit and miss, quality wise, but this one has be very carefully crafted. The kerning is spot on and there are loads of glyphs to choose from – it’s a nice curly script that’s also really legible. It’s a winner!
