Zothique Font in Tim Burton’s “Tragic Toys”
We’ve recently been doing much work on our Dark Shadows font project, and it’s encouraging to be reminded that there is an ongoing association of our fonts with various Tim Burton projects. This is evident most recently in the selection of our classic Zothique font as the style for Tim Burton’s name in the packaging and promotional materials for the new series of figures based on designs from some of his cartoon drawings titled “Tim Burton’s Tragic Toys for Girls ad Boys” which features odd characters like Oyster Boy, Stain Boy and The Girl with Many Eyes.
Not sure what the other font used prominently on the products is, but it’s very gratifying to see Zothique selected for Burton’s name and it looks great at the head of the poster as shown to the right. The peculiar and quirky style of the script fits Burton’s personna rather well.
