Spadina font family

The Canada Type library has acquired a reputation for housing some of the most eye-catching and popular hippie and funk fonts. Keving King wanted to be part of the hype, so he got the green light to get down and boogie, and Spadina is the result. Based on a 1971 Karlo Wagner design called Fortunata, Spadina is the kind of art nouveau face that mixes influences so crazily it may as well be an acid flashback. When you look closely at the individual letters, there is no telling what mood will pop up in your face. It's got some blackletter elements, nineteenth century ornamentals, some halloween fear and cheer, big band mystery, big hair garnish, and a lot of musicality. And it all adds up to one melodious hippie chic design that sets the ultimate optimistic mood. To tweak the consciousness-expanding experience even further, a bonus background layer font, called Spadina Bus, is included in the package. Layer away and play with your color palette until your eyes dilate and you are one with the universe, or vice versa. Spadina was named after one of the more historic and colorful streets in downtown Toronto. The word Spadina originates from the Ojibwa word ishpadina", which roughly translates to "high hill" or "rising land"."

Features

Languages

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.

Stylistic Alternates

Tag: salt

Function: Many fonts contain alternate glyph designs for a purely esthetic effect; these don't always fit into a clear category like swash or historical. As in the case of swash glyphs, there may be more than one alternate form. This feature replaces the default forms with the stylistic alternates. The user applies this feature to Industria to get the alternate form of g.

Sylistic Set 1

Tag: ss01

Function: In addition to, or instead of, stylistic alternatives of individual glyphs (see 'salt' feature), some fonts may contain sets of stylistic variant glyphs corresponding to portions of the character set, e.g. multiple variants for lowercase letters in a Latin font. Glyphs in stylistic sets may be designed to harmonise visually, interract in particular ways, or otherwise work together. Examples of fonts including stylistic sets are Zapfino Linotype and Adobe's Poetica. Individual features numbered sequentially with the tag name convention 'ss01' 'ss02' 'ss03' . 'ss20' provide a mechanism for glyphs in these sets to be associated via GSUB lookup indexes to default forms and to each other, and for users to select from available stylistic sets.

These fonts support the Basic Latin character set. Each font is Unicode™ encoded, and available in d
