Narrow Transitional fonts

Giovanni Jubert's picture


Someone asked me to design a typographic tatoo for his fore arm.
Its a three word sentence set in all caps,
and it has to run aprox. 6 inches wide.
As for the design I am considering Baskerville's or other transitional fonts,
but the client seems to want a similar font with higher cap-heigth.

- "I want the letters to be taller, cant you stretch them up?!"
- "NOooooo. I wont do that...! I'll have to find another font!,
if i did that i would distort de proportions of the letters...."

Any suggestions of tall cap fonts in this style?
Any suggestion at all?

What you want is an old narrow Runic.

Maybe a little muscle flexing would do the trick?

Good for you for sticking to your typographically correct guns.

Only it wasn't clever.
