I wanted to make a classy version of chancery cursive, clean, elegant, calligraphic and readable. It turned to be a 5 month project.
Originally each letter was written with 2mm Leonardt 70 nib and then digitized. I put a lot of effort to make it a versatile font, retaining a lot of its calligraphic nature and yet having polished, smooth appearance.
November script has loads of stylistic alternatives for all of the capital letters and for many of the lowercase characters too, full set of punctuation marks and some nice ligatures for tricky letter combinations.
Since chancery cursive is classics, the font will be good match for almost any task, like wedding invitations, menu cards, labels, poetry or even instagram overlays.
This font comes in Open Type format, so the alternates are accessible by turning on ‘Stylistic Alternates’ and ‘Ligatures’ buttons on in Photoshop’s Character panel, or via any software with a glyphs panel, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop CC, Inkscape.
