Delve Fonts is chuffed to announce the release of Tuppence™ by the award winning designer and author Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich.

Inspired by the London foundry Stephenson Blake typeface Blackfriars, designer extraordinaire Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich reimagined this quirky gem for today. de Vicq brought a more graceful appearance to the design and explored its reversed contrast nature with new weights while still retaining the warmth and character of its English primogenitor of the Victorian era. The proportions of the lowercase are decidedly wider and more geometric overall and the italics are imbued with more calligraphic flare. Tuppence includes a marvelous selection of catch words, swash capitals, ligatures, arrows, and over a hundred beautiful ornaments and symbols.

Delve Withrington, founder of Delve Fonts said: “Roberto skillfully reinterpreted a legacy design to resonate with what today's designers want and expect from a font.”

This initial release of Tuppence has a complement of over 960 glyphs, supporting 224 languages including Vietnamese. Tuppence is a twelve font family featuring six weights ranging from ExtraLight to Bold and six italic counterparts. The Variable Font version of Tuppence leverages the new format to include all twelve styles and the option to use any custom instance (variations) between those 12 styles.

Picture Tuppence used on beverage labels, greeting cards, posters, restaurant logos, and in other display mediums.
