MyFonts just excitedly announced the debut of the Rare Bird Font Foundry, which is based in Seattle, USA.
Rare Bird Font Foundry
The new font foundry has been co-founded by Jess McCarty of the one-woman foundry Magpie Paper Works and Tristan and Michelle of Besotted Co, a popular creative resource repository.
Their ambitious goal is to create the most beautiful hand-lettered font foundry in the world. With the debut of Rare Bird Specimen II, they are taking the genre by storm and are already well on their way.
Hand drawn by Karla Lim of Written Word Calligraphy, Specimem II is an elegant suite of fonts perfectly suited for wedding stationery, logo design, luxury product packaging, fragrance and wine labels. Also it comes with loads of OpenType features, Roman numerals, alternates, and realistic double-letter ligatures.
