What is the Brilliance font?

Brilliance is a glamorous contemporary display blackletter combining the rich tapestry of Textura with a hint of the airy lightness of Spencerian script, ideal for display purposes. In addition to exuberant, swashy capitals and crisp, rhythmic lowercase letters, Brilliance offers a set of unique small capitals modeled on condensed Roman lettershapes. They can be used to replace the lowercase (SMCP feature) for a highly condensed titling style, or to replace the capitals (C2SC feature) for a compact, legible text style. More…
Like all Catharsis Fonts products, Brilliance comes with extensive language support, ligatures, and contextual and stylistic alternates, and careful spacing and kerning. The starting and ending flourishes in the last poster images can be obtained either via stylistic alternates of the guillemets («»), or by typing two or three guillements in a row.
Acknowledgements: Brilliance was designed entirely in the Glyphs Application, though it closely follows a calligraphic style I developed for myself with the broad-nib pen, which in turn draws on many inspirations from traditional and contemporary blackletter calligraphy. The font greatly benefited from helpful feedback from the Typophile and TypeDrawers forums. The background texture in the promotional posters is by MGB-Stock. This font is dedicated to Simone, who gave me a Pilot Parallel Pen for my birthday and thus set all of this in motion.
