About this font family
Syracuse is a font inspired by the typefaces of the “Arts & Crafts” designers of the early 20th Century. As such, it has a distinct “hand” look.
In “Syracuse” you will find hints of Dard Hunter’s work at the Roycrofters in East Aurora, New York, a little of the Art Nouveau style of 1900 Vienna, even a touch of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s design ideas in Glasgow, Scotland. The font was named for the city in New York where Gustav Stickley produced his Craftsman furniture. More…
Syracuse owes a debt to all of these sources yet is original and different from any other “Arts & Crafts” font available.
