Shameless

Neil Summerour’s latest release sat in a ‘drawer’ for two years gathering dust. Fortunately for us, he discovered it, dusted it off, and released it as a scratchy, dynamic, and elegant script font. Shameless is available in two flavors, Standard & Deluxe, with the latter comprising more characters. Shameless is published by the Positype type foundry, and is available through MyFonts.

FF Ernestine

FF Ernestine is Nina Stössinger’s debut release. Wide & open letterforms sporting slab serifs, & a generous x-height ensuring its legibility even at the very smallest sizes. Topped with stylistic & contextual alternates, arrows, & two sizes of smallcaps — this is quite the recipe for a charming, robust, & versatile text face.

Available in four weights — Light, Regular, Demibold, & Bold — with complimentary italics, & even an Armenian counterpart, drawn by Hrant Papazian. For further information, visit the FF Ernestine mini-site, or FontFont.
