The typeface upstairs

In case you were wondering, the typeface for the nameplate is from that “giver of all good things typographic,” Manfred Klein.

It is FreeBradbury

I wanted something unicase (no distinction between upper and lower case) because most (all?) of the early Christian documents were in unicase letterforms. But it needn’t be antique, and should preferably have a bit of whimsy.

When I learned of Bradbury Thompson’s unicase experiment, Alphabet 26, I was caught with the romance. This isn’t one of his faces, but rather an homage.

Thought you might like to know.
