About this font family
Arcana Manuscript is a calligraphic exploration of the Victorian gothic aesthetic that created literary classics such as Frankenstein and Dracula. Designer Gabriel Martínez Meave first wrote with a fountain pen, then digitized the results to create this unique typeface. Arcana takes its name from the ultimate secrets that lie behind astrology, alchemy, and magic. In gothic novels, such secrets were written in forbidden books, hidden in the dark and grotesque sanctums of magicians or mad scientists (possibly the ancestors of todays computer scientists and type designers).
