About Tusque Font Family

Tusque is a layered chromatic type family with a Tuscan flavor. Regular, Circus and Tooled can stand alone, while Highlight and Deco are purely for layering up multicolored gorgeousness.

Tusque lends itself to fairy tales, wine labels and boutique logos, and makes some particularly delectable drop caps. Although it’s all caps, the lower case slots are all different from the upper case so you can mix and match to your heart’s content. There are also a bevy of swash alternates and ligatures at your disposal. The contextual alternates feature cleverly substitutes alternate versions of more triangular glyphs like A and V to give a better fit.

The ordinal feature changes ‘a’ and ‘o’ to the feminine and masculine ordinals for Spanish etc. but also changes ‘c’ and ‘ac’ to superscript lowercase versions for names like McBride and MacDonald.

About Eclectotype

Eclectotype is the foundry of Dave Rowland, and has been making retail and custom type for over a decade (formerly known as Schizotype). As the name suggests, the catalogue features an eclectic mix of styles from text workhorses to full on display faces. This is not a foundry that likes to stick to trends or expectations, often to the detriment of commercial success, but strives to make every release useful, original, and interesting.
