Emily In White font
Emily In White font by Julia Sysmäläinen (Juliasys type foundry) is a digital interpretation of the unique American poet Emily Dickinson’s handwriting. Emily Dickinson (1830–1886) is considered one of the greatest American poets and one of the pioneers of literary modernity. Unfortunately, like most genii, she doesn’t receive recognition before her death. Emily Dickinson left behind a whole life’s handwritten work of poems and letters, most of which were rescued from the fire (what was Emily’s last wish) by her younger sister Lavinia. Thus Emily “Woman in White” Dickinson’s delicate, fragile, aerial, “reminding of bird tracks” slanted script is saved for posterity and reincarnated in Julia Sysmäläinen’s Emily In White typeface.
Emily In White font comes with a plenty of alternates, ligatures, and swashes in the comprehensive OpenType set of options, allowing you lively and graphically to interpret and tailor the filigree handwriting according to your design needs. It offers language support Western and Central European, and over 1800 glyphs.
Excellent for luxury packaging, wedding invitations, magazines, and wherever romantic and tender message is required.
