Bradley Chancery Desktop EULA

Webfont: for your website

Webfonts can be used on a single domain. Agencies responsible for multiple websites, for example web design agencies or hosting providers, may not share a single webfont license across multiple websites.

Every time the webpage using the webfont kit is loaded (i.e, the webfont kit CSS which holds the @font-face rule is called) the counting system counts a single pageview for each webfont within the webfont kit.

For usage in graphic images shown on the website, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.

This font's webfont license is:


You get a total number of prepaid pageviews that can be used over time. This means that you will pre-pay for a number of pageviews, then you'll have to come back to order more after your site has been viewed that number of times.

For example, if you order 250,000 page views, when your webpages using the webfonts have been viewed 250,000 times, you will need to buy the webfont package again for an additional number of prepaid pageviews. Pageviews are valid for 1 year.

About Bradley Chancery Font Family

A new font in the Humanistic tradition, for letters, poetry, display graphics - and just to make the everyday more elegant. This family of fonts has four members: the basic plain font has regular and bold weights, and each of those has its swash variant (labelled 'italic') which you can use to replace single letters giving a dash of spice at the beginning or end of a word, phrase or line. Of course you *can* use the swash forms together, but it's a pretty stressful effect and that's not our idea! Richard Bradley writes:

My inspiration for this font was the wonderful Humanistic Cursive writing of such 15th and 16th century Italian writing masters as Giambattista Palatino and Giovanantonio Tagliente as well as Bartholomew Dodington, who, as Regius Professor of Greek at Cambridge University wrote Latin, Greek and other languages in a singularly beautiful example of the Italian cursive style.

The letters were written using a Parker Frontier fountain pen fitted with the excellent Parker bold italic steel nib. I wrote the letters on old computer print-out paper with regular bands across it. The x-height (the height of a, c, e etc) is two-thirds of the capital height, with rather long ascenders (b, h) and descenders (g, y), following the proportions of the original writing in the early manuscripts and emulating the fine writing of those wonderful early scribes.

We trust that this font will prove useful to folk for a wide variety of typographic needs in its bold and regular weights and the with added extra Swash font, which again follows the early masters, in adding extra flow and decoration to any wording set in this new font.

I wanted to make available a hand-written font in that style for use today using the modern digitising process which was completed by David Kettlewell from my scans of the original hand-written letters.

While the capitals are only 50% higher than the lower-case letters in this style, the ascenders and descenders are much longer than is normal in other styles. We have set the the space between the lines (the 'leading', traditionally marked by pieces of lead) so that the lines don't run foul of one another, but depending on how much text you set in this type and how it sits, you might choose to set the lines closer together in your word processor, layout, or graphics programme. Instead of swash variants of the numbers, there is a selection of ornaments. There is a video to show how you might use the swash capitals and finals, as well as more examples at New Renaissance Fonts.
