Suomi Script is a typeface with a twist (pun intended): it has more than 1600 ligatures with two or more glyphs connected to make it look like an odd hand-written script polished by ITC.

This a headline font with three degrees of liveliness. Choose appropriately.

I happened to come across a facsimile of a sample of text with typeface made by Sweynheim & Pannartz in 1476.

Tailor was a study of slab serif style with round and comfortable feel. I wanted to merge round shapes with exaggerated ink traps for legibility.
Tournedot is a semi-serif headline font with two stylistic sets to give more possibilities for different feel.
A friendly family with six weights.
The matrix screen types from the movie War Games stuck in my mind, so I decided to make few versions.
A headline font with medieval feel.
Televisio is a headline font witha technical retro feel.
