As we mentioned in a recent article on Projects in Development, we’ve been working on some fonts based on lettering by Fanny Railton. It took a bit longer than expected, but the first of those is done, a new font called Changeling based on her caption lettering from her illustrated edition of Midsummer Nights Dream.

Changeling has two complete sets of variant uppercase characters plus additional variants of a number of key characters. It’s stylistically reminiscent of Howard Pyle’s caption lettering in the Brandywine font with the same kind of arts and crafty hand-penned look.

You can download and try the demo version of Changeling in TrueType format for Mac or PC. The full version of the font is available if you want to BUY IT NOW.
