About this font family
Penstroxx is a collection of 5 fonts that are based on the powerful, expressive Traits de plume (penstrokes) designed in Paris around 1930 by Alfred Latour. I designed a lot of extra penstrokes to make this a full set of glyphs.
Instead of putting all mirrored glyphs into one set, I put the into 4 sets (A, B, C, D). A and B being the horizontal mirrored ones – and – C and D being the vertical mirrored ones. Lots of these join! The fifth set is S for symmetrical! The symmetrical glyphs can be used as middle-, start- or the end pieces. I hope it is clear what I mean. More…
I sell all five sets – since they belong together – for the price I usually charge for one font.
