St. Nicholas is based on the title lettering from the early 20th century childrens magazine St. Nicholas, published by the Warne company, which is perhaps best known for publishing the works of Beatrix Potter. The magazine featured several different title styles over the years, but this particular design stood out so we designed a complete font based on it. It’s a full featured text font with a complete set of alternate and international characters. Stylistically it is distinguished by the embellished loop serifs on the upper case characters, which really set it apart when used for titles. We’ve brought St. Nicholas back and updated it as an early Christmas present.
