A Day without Sun
A Day without Sun is an ultra-condensed version of Panforte, created by Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini based on the design of Debora Manetti for Panforte. Hand drawn in easy big strokes, its an extremely condensed typeface that allows you to typeset text in faux-handamade fashion, with the subtle elegance of vintage handlettered menus. Lovers of world cuisine will be delighted to discover that it supports over forty languages using the latin alphabet, spiced with hand-picked diacritics and comes also with a tasty side dish of greek and cyrillic characters.Its grungy, handmade characteristics are visible at medium and high point sizes but do not impact the effect of the font when set in text.
A Day in the Sun open type features include small case characters, oldstyle numerals and a series of ligatures that help keeping the distinctive handmade look (they can be switched off by unchecking the “standard ligatures” option in your design software).
A Day in the Sun includes also some ligature dingbats, accessible by typing the corresponding sequence of characters.
