Classic Font: Asrafel

We originally released Asrafel in 1999 after we developed it for a book cover project. It was conceived with the idea of combining art nouveau elements and calligraphic elements and to produce a look evocative of the feathers in the wings of a bird of prey. The result works well, with a kinship to our Abaddon font, but a less aggressive and more aesthetic look. The font includes capitals, small caps and alternate forms for many of the characters.

tjcucumbersWe recently spotted Asrafel in action at a local Trader Joe’s where it was being used to label packs of cucumbers. Not the sexiest use of the font, but it’s nice to see it being used.

You can order the full version of Asrafel for just $24 from our online store.
