Phylactere font family

Designed by Florent Courtaigne in 2008
phylactere has been made for comics books "Script" looking, but fluently readable. This font draws one’s inspiration from a handwriting, in order to maintains a certain dynamism and irregularity. It's a serifless font, with small capitals characters, always readable at any dimension, despite a tight tracking. Phylactere has been designed essentialy for comics, and considering the main constraints of this art such as: showing a very dense amount of information, in a limited space, without encroaching on the drawings and also by respecting the work's graphic style.
