About Darnalls Font Family
Darnalls is a slightly badly-printed style of old-fashioned-book typeface. There is the standard version which has a little print noise (quite subtly in the Regular version, more noticeably in the Bold version); and a clean version which has virtually no noise or bits, just the slightly misprinted letters and numbers and so on. These 2 varieties both have the 4 standard versions of Regular, Bold, and their 2 italic counterparts.
There are special characters for most double-letter combinations in lower case, to avoid having two identical misprinted letters together (such as bb, dd, tt - 18 in total, all the combinations you are likely to need), plus another 28 characters for common letter combinations (such as cr, ad, er, ot, be, sp,) to give an element of variety to the text rather than having every misprinted 'e' or 'a' and so on look the same throughout, there's 2 or 3 different variations of letter that are used, to mix things up a bit. (You can see, for example, in the small square flag accompanying this font that the two a's and l's in Darnalls are somewhat different, and the 3 n's in the picture for the author Fickan Finn are all different). These are all activated by turning ligatures on in any OT-ready software (some programs enable it by default). You can also type some of these examples into the text-box on this webpage to see it, with ligatures set to on. And there's lots of other OT features like historical forms, subscript and so on, giving plenty of variety to the characters. There's a little more info in the zip file.
And of course there's a full set of accented characters for Western, Central and Eastern European languages as you'd expect.

About Aah Yes
Aah Yes Fonts presents 10 brand-new and original font families, including Dascari, a funky and informal yet highly-readable font that would suit a large variety of modern graphics situations; and Cabragio which is a curvy font which flows attractively and dynamically, especially in its lower case letters, and is a quite distinct font.
Deltarbo is a conventional medium-heavy sans-serif that has modern clean lines and a slightly "rounded-rectangle" feel for great legibility.
There are two handwriting fonts in this new selection - Write is a fairly neat (perhaps even formal) handwriting font or print, useable for both display and text with clear and well-defined characters, and Dorkihand is genuinely left-handed writing, and veers more towards the grunge style of handwriting.
Tuzonie, Crockstomp and Rappica fall into the "misprinted, degraded or distressed" category, and give varying degrees of degradation to different block types, with internal and external letter-distress being available.
Smeethe manages to look almost out of focus while being both degraded and yet smooth, but not so degraded as to impair its legibility.
Meltifex puts at the user's disposal a full set of melting letters, which drip away at the bottom.
Dascari and Write have been created in an extensive variety of weights and styles.
All Aah Yes's Fonts' font packages contain both TTF or OTF formats, (i.e. both formats are included in the same zip file) and all the fonts are - as you would expect - comprehensively kerned, and contain an extensive selection of accented and non-English characters.
As far as the Font Authors are aware, the invented font names are all quite meaningless, none of them is something unspeakable in Etruscan or Hittite. (But if they are, please let us know.)
