I spotted a very appropriate use of our Captain Kidd font while browsing books at Barnes and Noble. It graces the cover of Cary Elwes new memoir in vignettes of his time working in The Princess Bride, which also features a picture of Elwes in his Dread Pirate Roberts costume – hence the connection to the Captain Kidd font.
The Princess Bride is a fantastic movie, and if you haven’t seen it you should rent it immediately. The title of the book is As You Wish which is a reference to the phrase used repeatedly by Elwes’ character in response to Princess Buttercup’s unreasonable requests. It’s a key element of the love story plot which runs through the entire movie.
The appearance of one of our fonts on the cover is pretty exciting, because As You Wish is at #9 on the New York Times Bestseller List and climbing.
