Rick Bradley – known for his Fine Hand, Bible Script, Bradley Hand and Calligraphic Ornaments – drew this font from a gravestone in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, dated 1241.
The irregularity lends a special charm to this ‘English dialect’ version of the international Lombardic style, while the ornamental points reflect the mediaeval ‘horror vacui’, fear of empty spaces where the evil one might creep in with his influences.
Perhaps most useful as a display font, but complete with lower case and extras.
