About Victoriana Font Family

Victoriana arose from an inquiry from the Victorian Society for a Victorian font for their journal. As it turned out, no commission resulted, but interest in such a font was aroused in Andy Benedek. Basing the design on some woodblock letterforms, outlines of a basic set of characters were drawn. These, however, were modified to the extent that the final font bore little resemblance to the woodblock letterforms. As erstwhile cyclists, the font was named after the British and champion world track cyclist, Victoria Pendleton who was greatly admired.

About Fine Fonts

Fine Fonts was formed to tap the creative skills of Michael Harvey and Andy Benedek. Before the formation, Michael Harvey had a very long and distinguished career as a letter cutter, a lettered book jacket designer, a type designer and a teacher. He has designed numerous typefaces which have been published by Monotype, Adobe and the Dutch Type Library. In contrast, Andy Benedek began his working life as a metallurgist—discovering the joy of lettering and font design later in life. He now earns his living by drawing lettering and fonts for corporate and brand identities, magazines and newspapers. The launch of Fine Fonts in 2000 was marked by the introduction of an entirely original display face, Aesop and that tradition has been maintained with later releases. Sadly, Michael Harvey died in October 2013, but Fine Fonts continues with Andy Benedek.
