About El Cid Font Family

El Cid is based on a Spanish round gothic-script hand similar to the northern rotundra blackletter. It is however simpler in form and more legible than its northern relative. A unique feature of this family is the Swashed face which includes extensions and swirls for letters that can be placed before, after, over or under words.

About Classic Font Company

The Classic Font Company was originally known as 'The Datafile' which was an Acorn Public Domain Library. Tony Nash, our font designer sent some of his work for inclusion in the library and it soon became apparent that Tony was a talented designer and together we set about polishing Tony's work adding hinting and fine tuning the finished typeface. They were an immediate sucess on the Acorn Computer platform. With the decline of the Acorn platform we decided to convert the typefaces for use on PCs. We used varied software including: FontLab, Font Monger, Fontographer, !FontEd, !Daeddalus and !FontFiend to name a few. We hope that you will find the unusual features of El-Cid, Carol, Frameworks and Savoy a joy to use.
