Amsel Antiqua

Ligatures support a more fluidly and varied outcome of the font. This opentype font is my first project made with “glyphs font editor”. The letters are hand illustrated, written with ink, scanned and digitized. Use Amsel Antiqua for advertising, stationery, editorial design, packaging, wedding invitations, posters, book design, Identity projects and everytime a hand-made and illustrative character is needed. I chose this font for the calendar project “zwölf shanties” to illustrate the verse of the different shanties.

The type Amsel Antiqua is published under the creative commons license. You can download the font here. Have fun!
