Epistolar font by Masklin8 Epistolar font by Masklin8
Cuando era niño, iba a las respectivas casas de mis abuelitas y veía pensamientos (casi siempre cristianos) colgados en las paredes. Me encantaba cómo se veía esa tipografía, y los mensajes no me disgustaban.

Ya grande, quise buscar la fuente tipográfica con la que estabanm hechos y nunca la encontré, así que un día hice una excursión a la Librería Parroquial, aquí en Guadalajara, y estuve buscando hasta que encontré uno de esos "pergaminos" con el tipo de letra que buscaba. Revisándolos a conciencia, me di cuenta de que ¡no usaban tipografía! ¡Eran escritos a mano! (y luego reproducidos fotomecánicamente, por supuesto). Así que me dí a la tarea de copiar los glifos y crear esta fuente, a la que llamé epistolar.

¡Ojalá que les guste!

When I was a little kid, I used to watch some christian scrolls my grandmothers had in their respective homes. I loved the typography they used to make them.
Many years later, i searched up and down for that font, but couldn´t find it. So I went to Librería Parroquial (a christian bookstore) and searched for some of those scrolls. In close examination, I relised they didn´t use a pre-made font, but instead wrote them by hand. So, I copied the gliphs and made the font out of them.

I hope you like it

Really awesome font! I would have guessed a font with so much variety in the proportions wouldn't work, but Epistolar works incredibly well. I really like the quirky /B and the descender on /P and /F.

Hey, thank you for your nice and well informed comments! I only wish I had more time to study and practice the typography.

Same here actually. There's always so much to do and learn and never enough time.
