Brigidis is a classic Celtic font with a unique look which is actually somewhat reminiscent of Church Slavonic as seen in our Patriarch font, or late roman rustic calligraphy like our Carinthia font. It’s based on hand lettering by Rudolf Koch derived from medieval manuscript sources. It’s very stylish and unusual, with especially tall and narrow character forms. The character set includes custom small-caps as well as the basic characters. In addition to being available as an individual font, Brigidis is also included in our Celtic Fantasy package. We originally wanted to name the font Brigida after the more familiar spelling of the Irish goddess, but another font with the same name already existed, so we went with the more unusual variant Brigidis.

You can download and try the demo version of Brigidis in TrueType format for Mac or PC. The full version of the font is available from our ordering site.
