I keep trying to come up with the perfect title font and while I’m not sure I’ll ever accomplish it, the process produces a lot of interesting fonts. The latest of these is Alexandrine. It was inspired to some degree by our recent Madding font, and also by the character forms in Illuminata. The idea was to take the general look of Illuminata, tone it down and make it less extreme and more usable for titles and even some text uses. In doing this I borrowed some ideas from Madding, but moved away from the Art Deco look of that font towards the cleaner look of Illuminata. The result works well. It’s attractive, readable and very modern.
