Hi! My name is Sara, and I'm a fontaholic. It's been three months since my last download (not counting yesterday), but I'm afraid I've now slipped into the area of fontmaking, with help from my friend Apostrophe who has taught me a little bit of how to do this. He's not responsible for my failings, only for some of the things I do right.
This font, Summertime, was originally created for a splash page I never got around to making. Maybe next summer... Like all my fonts, here I have consciously aimed at a handmade look, with rough edges here and there and elements which go together but don't precisely match. This particular font is not a replica of any specific lettering style; it's just what came out of my digital pen while I was thinking about a nostalgic concept. It is meant to evoke the voice of hand-drawn illustration and poster advertising alphabets from the late 19th-early 20th century, but even more the 1960s-70s craft-fair-and-flower-stand hand-rendered revivals of those alphabet styles, which hold special summertime memories for me from my childhood.
There are no Cyrillic characters and only very few Greek characters. This is because I don't speak Russian or Greek and don't feel comfortable trying to mess with symbols I don't really know intimately. The Greek characters here are ones I find myself using often.
Summertime font contains 366 defined characters and 360 unique glyphs. The font contains characters from the following unicode character ranges: Basic Latin (93), Latin-1 Supplement (95), Latin Extended-A (128), Latin Extended-B (7), Spacing Modifier Letters (8), Greek and Coptic (4), Latin Extended Additional (8), General Punctuation (12), Currency Symbols (4), Letterlike Symbols (4), Mathematical Operators (1), Miscellaneous Symbols (1).
