Infante Font – Denslow Typography For Children’s Books
I rarely do children typography but I’m a fan of W.W. Denslow’s illustrations books and typography because of their simplicity and originality. You can buy Denslow’s books in many venues. They make great gifts for children.
Based on Denslow typography, I designed a Western commercial font called Infante, which means in Spanish – a baby. Denslow’s typefaces are characterized by extended characters and recycling of geometric elements. For children’s books, a main requirement is text’s readability and legibility as well as alphabet learning. Therefore, the re-innovation design of a new brand typeface for a bestseller children’s book could be an added benefit for the author and publishing house.
Please notice that Infante font is for cover books presentations and illustrations displays because that’s how Denslow used these design fonts in his publications. For text narratives, I recommend you use a more conventional font such as Monotype Century Gothic.
Infante font is available from my professional foundry for Windows and Mac with unlimited license and you can purchase the font through my Paypal account. A word of warning – if you’re planning to save a few bucks, using a free font from fonts portals for your hard-working publications, I think you’re in the wrong business. Most free fonts are made by amateurs with rasterized bitmaps, non-scalable, and the metrics do not have optical thickness, hinting, and accurate kerning pairs. Big difference in the world of typography design.
Below is Infante’s character map and illustration samples for your consideration. For further details about purchasing the font, contact me at darkvotum@gmail. Thanks.
