Charcuterie Font Family
A large and rare undertaking, Charcuterie is a family of ten distinct yet related typefaces, many of which have their own font families, and three decorative/ornamental typefaces. While most of the Charcuterie typefaces are outfitted with a standard character set, Charcuterie Engraved features 135 swash alternates and Charcuterie Cursive boasts 275. Charcuterie Frames offers a broad and endless approach to creating frames of any width, height and style. Featuring 60 corner elements and 20 top, bottom and side pieces along with a detailed User’s Guide in the ‘Gallery’ on how to construct the frames. Charcuterie Catchwords features nine different styles for a total of 82 glyphs. Charcuterie Ornaments is very practical and features 100 glyphs a vast array of arrows, brackets, rules, icons, ribbons and more. This ambitious, yet accessible, set offers a virtually endless series of combinations, allowing each designer to form a tasty platter of ingredients, one that is uniquely theirs, for each project. Used solo or blended with other fonts from this large family, elements of Charcuterie are well suited for headlines, titling, logos, display, packaging, signage, or advertising. Dig deep into each typeface to find a rich set of fonts (the number depending on the typeface), revealing variations upon variations. The word charcuterie means the preparation of meats. Today, it often refers to a wide and varied selection of meats served together, listed as a single, beautiful, and complex menu item. Charcuterie celebrates the personally crafted -- the sense of the human touch giving it a slightly rough edge that only adds to its charm. The ‘roughness’ derives from a slight stressing and small irregularities in some fonts. This bit of unevenness doesn't dominate the look -- it’s simply the personality and humanity of the type designer cooked into the final piece. Charcuterie is an homage to the inventiveness, passion, and care of peasants who proudly handed down recipes through generations. Their humble fare is used by bistro chefs to create masterpieces by ever so slightly transforming the simple into the sumptuous. Similarly, with Charcuterie the designer can employ the handcrafted look of the many letters within these font families to create a project that is jaunty, quirky, and juicy or one that is a gloriously rich and varied feast for the eyes.
