Type Fantastique

Sometimes just the examples of a new typeface are stunning. When designing an invitation that is mostly about type I always refer to the font-designer's original pages. This is from the font "Karmel Korn". How fun to design something inspired by or perfect for the circus! Not the scary circus with sad animals and scary clowns, but that circus of our youth where we Oohed and Aahed with fingers sticky from treats.

And this one is called Omaggio, and if I spoke Italian I'm sure I could accurately translate its description which I suspect is mostly about being an homage to the typeface Bodoni, but there's a whole lot of other stuff mentioned in there...
