Geometric Art Nouveau lettering inspired by as well as trying to mimic Uncial & medieval Insular script letters!
I love the look of this style. The name is self explanatory ;) if you know French.........
UC, numerals and some symbols have one line thicker than the others, LC only has the thinner lines. LC can be used on its own if even thickness of lines is desired but it is 3 px shorter than UC which will show clearly when using Basic Latin LC in combination with Hebrew, numerals, some symbols and some punctuation marks. Cyrillic and Hebrew added. Latin1 will come soon.
Fancy Pantaloons is a typeface for when you are feeling a bit silly and pretentious without wanting to be too over-the-top. This typeface reminds me of old lettering on signs from the early 1900's. A combination of Victorian, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and a bit of Techno.
The painting in the sampler is from Wikimedia: the "Villa Petraia". I'll add more diacritics when I know which language(s) my friends want to see supported.This is a clone
Work in progress.

Just to show that I have finished the UC as mentioned in the 'Biscuit de l'Ouest' description. The UC are on biscuits.
Diacritics of more Latin are done as well as a few more symbols and punctuation. A crumb-free "+" is on the "%", a biscuit with surface dips is on the "(" and one with a flat surface is on the ")". The square brackets, when used without a space or letters, will make into a narrower biscuit, and are also used like round brackets.
I love the traditional French biscuits made on the French west coast where Loire meets Atlantic.
The biscuits are thin, crunchy, light, not too large, not very sweet, melt on the tongue, and biscuits very like the original can be made/baked quite easily.
The traditional version has a limited range of letters, enough to write the name of town, manufacturer and product. I've been unsuccessful in finding an image of the font which contributed just a few letters to decorate these biscuits.
I spent some time looking at other type of the Victorian/Art Nouveau era until I had collected enough information to help me design the missing letters. I added the French diacritics, naturally. I think my additions look successful and the whole font looks quite Art Neauveau and in the style used originally.
The square brackets [ and ] make a biscuit shape when used 'blank'.
Bon appetit, enjoy your "Biscuit de l'Ouest".This is a clone of Petit Biscuit
