Here Be Monsters
I noticed this wonderful Icelandic project of illustrated type inspired by medieval maps featuring fantastical sea creatures.
Design by Reykjavík based Stella Björg, these decorated capitals remind me of the Victorian illustrations I’ve written about recently. I love that several of the creatures appear to be based on specific Icelandic mythical beasts, as named at the bottom of the print. I also really like the print colours and flecked paper that gives the final work its antique look.
My “Here Be Monsters” illustrated letters started from the simple idea of writing “MONSTER” but having finished it just didn’t seem like there was much left to complete the alphabet. I was in no hurry to complete it, so very slowly monstrous letters got added and finally there appeared a complete alphabet. - Stella Björg
Anodyne is a warm and weathered all-caps font with hand-printed texture and unique shadow options. Features include four distress variations for each letter and at least two for every other character. Double-letter ligatures add realism by eliminating identical texture in adjacent characters.
Layering regular and shadow versions allows independent control of the shadow color. Switch between lower-case and capital letters to change texture, or use opentype contextual alternates for additional, extra-distressed variations. Anodyne has an extended character set for multiple language support.
