Folkard has been one of our most popular fonts. It is based on the hand hand lettering of British (later Canadian) artist and calligrapher Charles Folkard. The font was developed by Dave Nalle from samples of his characteristic hand lettering taken from book covers and sheet music which he illustrated and decorated. Charles Folkard is probably best known for his illustrations for Pinnochio and Alice in Wonderland. The Folkard font has swashed capital letters and several variant forms of a number of the letters. The lowercase characters are distinguished by having characteristics similar to insular minuscule lettering, while the upper case characters are a fanciful variant on traditional roman characters. Folkard has become popular as a font for book covers and merchandising, particularly in association with fairy and fantasy subject matter. A companion set of additional variant swashed characters is in development. You can purchase Folkard on our Ordering Site.
