Burd Ellen Font

Burd Ellen is a decorative hand-lettered font based on early 20th century artists lettering. It has a number of unique features characteristic of arts and crafts period lettering, including decorative flourishes which can be applied to many characters, complete alternate versions of many of the characters, and decroative dots which can be placed in five different positions relative to any character. The name comes from the classic rhyme Childe Rowland about a girl named Burd Ellen who is kidnapped by fairies.
