Last Date JNL was designed by Jeff Levine and published by Jeff Levine. Last Date JNL contains 2 styles and family package options.  

A typographic conundrum presented itself with the hand lettered title on the cover of the 1919 song 'I Am Always Building Castles in the Air'.

The capitalized portion ['Castles in the Air'] was a hybrid mix of a few Art Nouveau-influenced rounded letters, yet along with this were squared letters with rounded corners (reflecting the upcoming Art Deco movement to take place in about another decade).

As a complete alphabet, it didnĂ­t mix as well as in those few short words. What to do? It was decided to go with the squared look and save the rounder characters for a future project.

The end result became Last Date JNL; available in both regular and oblique versions.
