I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick. Add all of them to your font collection! Let it grow!

This week, I have the sweet Chiara at Books for A Delicate Eternity picking the fonts. She picked this week’s fonts and talked about why she loves them. Font loveeeee. <3 

(Also, today, weirdly, coincides with Chiara’s blogoversary! So I wish her the biggest happy blogoversary!)

 Wow. W O W. I cannot even begin to describe how much I love Bombshell Pro. Even though I’ll probably never own it because it’s quite expensive, I absolutely adore everything about this font. I must admit the main thing I love about Bombshell Pro is the ‘t’. I have searched for a ‘t’ like this one, and it simply does not exist. Bombshell Pro has the perfect ‘t’.  — Chiara

(Note: this is a paid font.)

 Okay, so I have to admit that I discovered Jellyka Delicious Cake whilst gathering the URLs for the other fonts in this post, but HOLY DOOLY. WHAT EVEN. I cannot explain my happiness at finding this beautiful font type. Hand-drawn looking fonts are some of my absolute favourites, and Jellyka Delicious Cake has that look, and more. I love the flicks off the letters, and how they are so long and almost eerie. Love, love, love this font.  — Chiara

 Eep. Okay, the guy that designed Sombody to Love is pretty much my favourite font designer. I am a fan of practically every font he has ever created (I’m looking at you, Clarks Summit). Again, this has that hand-drawn feel, but it looks as if it’s been drawn with a thick permanent marker, and that really endears me to this font. The thickness of the letters, and the boldness, as well, are just gorgeous.   — Chiara

 If I could somehow have Nella Sue as my own handwriting, I’d be one happy girl. Unfortunately, that is not possible (at least at the time I am writing this), and I have to settle on ogling it on the computer screen. I don’t have much to say on this font, except that I think it’s very precious. I love how not every single letter is connected, but when they are, it’s in a really subtle and beautiful way (I mean look at every time the ‘d’ is used *sighs happily*).  I haven’t found the perfect use for this font yet, but it WILL happen, because this font needs to be shown off.   — Chiara

So, there you go! Those are Chiara’s picks! What is your favorite from her picks?

  1. OH HAI C3 <3

    Gahhhh I love Bombshell Pro so much. I think one of the things that make it stand out is that even if you put two of the same letters, there are different versions of a single letter which makes it look even more handwritten. If I could marry one font, this would be it (ho ho high praise but THIS FONT <3).

    Meh I'm not as big of a fan of Jellyka, the waves feel awfully distracting to me and a bit of an overload but that's just me haha

    Oooo I like Somebody to Love! (it also wants me to belt out in song, CAN ANYBODY FIND MEEE SOMEBODY TO LURVEEE? but that's beside the point lol). Those marker-type fonts are so good for whimsical-ish graphics.

    I think I have Nella Sue but gah, hard to find an opportunity to use it because it's kinda theme-specific but it's soooo pretty. Can this please be my handwriting too? Haha.

    Great picks C3 <3

  2. Sombody to love is really the type of font I fall in love with! (Why isn’t it somebody? It annoys me, haha.) Nella Sue is pretty cool too.

  3. GAH, Bombshell Pro is TOTALLY my favorite! And you’re right: it DOES have the perfect ‘t’!

  4. CAKE! Ohmisweetlordy those are glorious <3 I absoutly love the Jellyka Delicious Cake. I have GOT to learn how to draw that one <3 ITS SO BEAUTIFUL!!
    Thanks for sharing the awesome, Cee!

    Oh my god Bombshell Pro is so cute. I’m going to have to lust after it like you because I cannot afford to buy a font. I just downloaded Nella Sue! I really love it because it’s somewhat similar to my handwriting, and I don’t know if I’ve ever really found a font like that.

  6. Those fonts look all super lovely! I really like Sombody to Love. At first I thought Sombody was a typo haha but it’s just the font being its fancy self lol. I can’t wait to add these fonts onto my new laptop when I get it. :)

  7. Annie says:

    I totally loved Bombshell Pro even without knowing what it was! Haha, I’ve seen it used a lot by bloggers and never knew what it was called but always loved it! And thanks for introducing me to Nella Sue! I would be so happy if it were my handwriting as well!

  8. Every time I come to your blog now it makes me smile. I just love this design! — Anyways, Somebody to Love is my favorite of the bunch, something about the curves on the Y. Does that sound weird? :)

  9. Love Bombshell Pro and Somebody to Love!

  10. alice-jane says:

    I LOVE BOMBSHELL PRO! And Somebody to Love, too! And Nella Sue, too!

    I wish my handwriting resembles any of these fonts but sadly, no. D:

  11. Kelly L. says:

    I cry whenever I come to your blog – your design is too gorgeous for me! -cries-
    And ohh, awesome picks Chiara! I LOVE Bombshell Pro.
    And a dumb Kelly moment: at first, I thought you spelled “Sombody” wrong – aka I thought you forgot the “e.” :P

  12. Michelle says:

    This feature always makes me want to redesign my blog or features, just to use a new font! All the pretty letters!
