About Operapolitan Font Family

Operapolitan is inspired by a hand-lettered list of board members to a major metropolitan opera company in the 1920s. The font features special ligatures and a complete alternative glyph set meant for use with OpenType contextual alternates to help create the feel of real hand lettering, along with a complete international character set and built-in small capitals. Elegant but not stuffy, the font has rough edges to capture a vintage, slightly-used vibe.

About E-phemera

E-phemera fonts are meant to revive type from years gone by in a way which captures the feeling of pre-digital printing technology. Most of the fonts in the collection were first developed for private use in designing vintage prop documents for movies and television shows. E-phemera fonts are inspired by old printed and hand-lettered material, and are usually designed a little rough and a little irregular, in deliberate defiance of the crisp perfection and merciless uniformity of modern digital fonts. Multiple letterforms and ligatures are provided, when possible and practical. We here at E-phemera fonts love computers and wouldn't do without them, but we also wish to remember and celebrate the days when every letter was an individual piece of metal or wood, and not just a collection of BCP data. Print is dead. Long live print!
