From the designer:
Brownstone, the face born from these explorations, is an original 21st-century design, yet one subtly infused with historical and cultural references – keen observers might spot influences from decorative typefaces of 19th-century foundries. And just as faces from that era were influenced by contemporary architecture, the frames included with Brownstone echo the ornate iron railings of Park Slope’s row houses. (There’s also a slight 1960s vibe to Brownstone, of novelty swash-sans photocompositing faces, that can be played up at your discretion.)
We can imagine this font this gracing bibliophiles’ notecards, wedding invitations and cozy coffee house signs in the very near future. Check out the Sudtipos site to buy Brownstone and download other inspired fonts.
