Daphne Script

ludwiguebele's picture

In the 1960s Georg Salden designed an opening advert for an hat shop in Dusseldorf. With a broad-nib pen he wrote a bold italic with large swashes. From this written text he later developed Daphne, a strong and sharp-edged typeface which includes a large number of separate swashes. These calligraphic swashes can be added to the letters in any order, which provides hundreds of possibilities.

Now, many years later, Salden decided to develop a script version of his Daphne typeface. Again, written with a broad-nib pen, Salden created an elegant and vital script with luscious swashes and numerous alternate characters.
