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!

Oh hey there. Look what’s back? Fonts! I’ve just been in quite a funk, but here I am, throwing these gorgeous fonts at you. You might notice that I’ve made it the old way instead of the mini-posters only because I’m trying to ease my way back to do this every week. (It’s quite hard when my brain is on resumes and cover letters.)

Go on, go look at the beautiful fonts!

You can’t really use South Rose as a day-to-day font, but it’s perfect for drop cap! I just love the designs in each letter. For some reason, they remind me of different building designs.

Now Some Weatz is what I call legit calligraphy! I find that some calligraphy fonts don’t exactly look like it had been created with ink and a nib, but Some Weatz shows off that this is pretty much hand done.

Doris Day was “inspired by the lettering that appeared in the 1940’s through 1960’s magazine ads.” I can see how this font was inspired by it. I can see it on an ad with a pink background trying to sell the latest kitchen products.

Pea Roxygirl is sooo far from my own handwriting. I would prefer this than my own, but alas, I can’t change it. (Well, I can, but old habits die hard.) I can just use fonts as a way for my handwriting to live vicariously? Ha.

LSTK Clarendon is actually a handlettered version of Clarendon, a slab serif typeface. Fun fact: Clarendon was used a lot by the German Empire government during World War I, and in wanted posters of the American Old West.

    I heard about this feature on the blog Tempest Books who featured your feature in one of her posts. What an original idea to do a feature about fonts. I find some fonts make the words more difficult to read, but I always find it interesting to see how fonts can give a special touch to a book cover.

    Oh, my gosh, I love South Rose!

  3. South Rose looks so cool! Pea Roxygirl is my favorite, though, because I love handwritten looking fonts. :)

    I LOVE South Rose and Some Weatz! I’m a sucker for calligraphy fonts and any fonts that can be used as drop-caps or all-caps. Great selections. :P

  5. OhmyGOSH. I cannot even with South Rose. I want to use it. I want to find a reason to use this fabulous font. And yes, I can totally see an awesome book having chapters starting off with a letter from this font. IT WOULD BE SO FABULOUS.

    I am pretty keen on Some Weatz, as well. And I love how it looks like legit calligraphy, like you said. Sometimes that’s hard to find, but wow. And the tails and stuff on the letters *faints*

    Doris Day is so gorgeous, and it really does remind me of that 60s magazine feel.

    I wish my handwriting was like Pea Roxygirl. I like my own handwriting, but sometimes I just fall in love with something that ISN’T my handwriting. Like this one. Can you imagine how pretty lists and shit would look like if this was your handwriting? *.*

    LSTK Clarendon is awesome. And the fun facts are doubly awesome.

    <3

  6. South Rose is really neat. It reminds me of the game I just finished playing — Bioshock Infinity. It has that old timey, kind of steam-punky look to it. Or maybe that’s just me?

  7. SOUTH ROSE IS AMAZING! It’s kind of Nordic and just *sigh* pretty <3

  8. Stormy says:

    Wow, South Rose is really beautiful! I just sat & stared it at for a minute or two.

    I love South Rose, and I have a feeling I would be absolutely intrigued by the kind of book that would use it as a font. Doris Day is my second favorite. I adore the retro look!
