Many of you love blackletter typography, its majestic presence and historic spirit, many of you have also had troubles with reading it correctly especially in some more artistic and decorative versions. Many of you have tried many times to reach the perfect combination – a blackletter style with excellent readability. We think Corradine fonts have just made great success in this with their hot new Whisky font family where you could feel the presence of Gothic letters, but at the same time you would face no troubles when reading it – it would be as easy as reading a sans serif typography with extended x-height. Even the initial letter (less or more decorated) are really easy-to-read without losing the personality and uniqueness of classic blackletter.
Corradine did a lot for improving legibility, but they actually did even more in sophisticating the whole Whisky family. First step is the multi-weight design – 7 weights from light to extra black. Each of them is developed in multilayer version as inline style and a fill style – all sharing same metrics and all fitting on one another perfectly, allowing you to choose different colors for letters and another for their inline fill. Making combinations between different weights and styles inside the family is real pleasure and fun – it’s very easy to use strong extra black weights for heavy masculine headlines, while the regulars and light styles will work perfectly for body texts. Yes, for body texts – Whisky is a blackletter family with optimized legibility due to a specific approach where the classic blackletter forms are mixed with elements of modern sans serif typography. The result is really amazing and yes, you are free to use Whisky for long text paragraph, columns, etc., even go below 8 points without losing font’s character or readability.
Whisky is great for editorial design with prominent historic presence, posters, beer and wine labels, strong brand names and even logos. An OpenType compatible software will let you unlock lots of alternative symbols like ligatures, multilingual characters, stylistic alternates, contextual swashes and many other extras. Whisky family is great choice for blackletter typography where legibility meets the authentic historic style.
