Description

Description

Aphrosine is a font based on pointed pen script. A huge lot of alternatives and smart OpenType features allow it to look almost indistinguishable from real live handwriting.

Aphrosine is something between handwriting and calligraphy: it took too much effort for being “just handwriting” but lacks seriousness and regularity comparing to true calligraphic fonts. That’s why it was called after a peculiar character from a children’s book: a witch who was very fond of dressing, makeup and writing letters.

Aphrosine has three faces. But unlike most other type families, the glyphs from one face do not match exactly the glyphs from another one. The faces are based on writing with different nibs but by the same hand.

Alexandra Korolkova

Alexandra Korolkova (born 1984) is a Russian typeface designer. She was awarded the infrequently presented Prix Charles Peignot in 2013 by the Association Typographique Internationale, becoming the first Russian prizewinner. Korolkova’s best-known work is probably the PT Fonts project, a partly open-source project commissioned by the Russian Ministry of Communications as a single family able to support all the common variations of the Cyrillic script. Korolkova works for the company ParaType and studied at the Moscow State University of Printing Arts. She is the author of the book Living Typography (Russian: Живая типографика) and has also given lectures on Cyrillic letter structure. She has also designed the typeface FF Carina for FontShop.
