Fantini was developed by Patrick Griffin and published by Canada Type. Fantini includes 5 designs and family package options. p > Fantini is the revival and elaborate upgrade of a typeface called Fantan, made in-house and released in 1970 by a minor Chicago film type supplier called Custom Headings International. In the most outstanding tradition of seriously-planned American film deals with at that time, CHI released a complete complement of swashes and alternates to the curly art nouveau letters. Fantan didn't fare much among the type scene's big players back then, however it did spread out like electrical power among the smaller sized ones, the mom-and-pop type stores. However by the late 1980s, when movie type was offering up the ghost, a lot of smaller sized players in the industry were gone, in many cases together with little original libraries that existed no place else and became instant rarities on their way to be forgotten and practically impossible to resurrect for future technologies.

Fantini is the enjoyable and curly art nouveau font bridging the softness and psychedelia of the 1960s with the flirty flare of the 1970s like no other face does. Elements of psychedelia and funk flare out and intermix crazily to create cool, swirly letters packed with a great deal of delight and energy. This is the type of American art nouveau font style that made its comeback in the late 20th century and is now a basic visual in the branding drive of nearly every consumer item, from coffee labels to book and music covers to your preferred sugar or thirst-crunching fix.

Alongside Fantini's huge primary font come small caps and 3 extra font styles loaded with swashy alternates and variations on plenty of letters. All readily available in all popular font formats. Fantini Pro, the OpenType variation, packs the whole she-bang in a single typeface of high adaptability for those who have applications that support sophisticated type technologies.

In order to make Fantini a reality, Canada Type received initial 2' film specimen from Robert Donona, a Clevelander whose interest about American film type has never failed, even decades after the technology itself ended up being obsolete. Keep an eye out for that name. Robert, who was computer-reluctant for the longest time, has now come a long way toward mastering digital type style.
