What is the Cherub font?

According to the Holman Bible Dictionary, a ‘cherub’ is a member of a class of winged angels who functioned in the book of Genesis as guardians. The word cherub is Hebrew. The plural form is cherubim. Cherubim are most frequently represented as small angels, children with wings, with chubby faces and rosy cheeks. This is called an artistic convention. It is not based on an historical or theological research, but merely on the fact that human beings want cherubs to look cute. So artists make them look cute. More…
The Cherub family consists of two sets of decorative initials, Regular and Caps, based on an old-time engraving of a cute cherub leaning on a support combined with the upper case from Phinney Jenson. Cherub Regular matches the decorative initials with the lower case from Phinney Jenson. Cherub Caps matches the decorative initials with the unadorned upper case from Phinney Jenson. Because of the differing requirements of upper and lower case letter forms, the character sets of the two fonts differ somewhat. Please download the Type Specimen PDFs from (in the gallery section of the font page) for details.
Cherub Regular and Cherub Caps are holiday fonts that gently remind us both of the sacred origins of the holiday season and the joyful associations in the minds of children that the holidays bring. Perhaps it is this innocent, trusting childlike joy that is the supreme spiritual expression of these holidays.
