About this font family

Cruickshank is a decorative typeface from the late Victorian period. The upper case includes a several letters with swash strokes, extending well below the baseline. The lower case contains small caps of simpler design. Alternatives to the swash caps are provided.

The face was designed by William W. Jackson and released by MacKellar, Smiths and Jordan Type Foundry of Samson Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1886. MS&J was founded originally as Binny & Ronaldson in 1796 and later known as The Johnson Type Foundry. Cruickshank has a strong late Victorian flavor without the extravagance of so many fonts of the period. In its simplicity and clarity, it may be seen as a precursor to the Art Nouveau style that would develop a decade later.
