Leodegar is based on samples of 7th century Frankish hand lettering. The characters draw on the minuscule calligraphic tradition, but are a bit more decorative and somewhat whimsical. They occupy an appealing position somewhere between calligraphy and decorative initials, perfect for titles which need a dark age look or for low-impact initials in an antique looking document. The name of the font comes from one of the many Merovingian Frankish kinds of the period. The upper case characters follow the original outline-style of the lettering and the lowercase is a solid style compatible with the uppercase but more suitable for text. You can try the DEMO version of Leodegar for free with a limited character set. Or you can ORDER the full version for only $24 online and download it right away.
