What is the Zelda font?

»ZELDA«, my new font family is named after Zelda Fitzgerald, the »Flapper« wife of »Tender is the Night« F. Scott Fitzgerald. They really lived it up at the French Riviera. Despite Scott making money in bundles, being the best paid writer of his time, they spent so much that they were always broke. But the really tragic thing is, Scott thought of himself as a failed writer, he never believed that he actually was »the writer« of his period. More…
Their time was the »Avant Garde« time, that is the French military term for »advance guard«, the ones who were always ahead of everybody else. This period at the beginning of the twentieth century did prepare the way for our modern times. Women especially ignored all conventional behaviour, cut their hair and skirts short, started to study all kinds of subjects that were until then reserved for males only. Those were the first days of women’s lib, we should thank the brave women of that time.
In literature, design and all the other arts a new time dawned and typefaces started to lose their serifs. In commemoration of those days I designed this collection that goes together well, can and should be mixed to your hearts desire.
In the »ZELDA-normal« packet are 610 glyphs, small-caps and all kinds of numbers, that are good for all latin writing languages. For good measure there are tabular numbers, old style numbers and the complete sets of nominators and denominators.
Since not everyone owns opentype savvy software I spread the glyphs over 6 single packets: Zelda-Normal (this is the basic font), Zelda-Capital-Ligatures, Zelda-High-Strung-Caps, Zelda-Narrow-Caps, Zelda-Narrow-Inline-Caps and Zelda-Small-Caps-Up! Enjoy!
