Ford's Folly W07 Italic Fonts
Copyright 2016 Monotype Imaging Inc. All rights reserved.
The Fords Folly typeface family is quite special. The three-weight family, designed by Jim Ford, has the spontaneity, verve and spirit of handwriting and much more. Based on Fords handwriting with a fine point Sharpie pen, the design includes a Pan-European character set that supports most Central European and many Eastern European languages. In addition, Ford drew multiple designs for each character to enable the setting of realistic handwritten copy. Along with these, fonts of Fords Folly contain ligatures, small caps, arrows and even scribbles. Because it is intended to replicate handwriting, there is an optimal size range where Fords Folly looks most natural: 16-point to 24-point. When it is enlarged beyond the optimal size, jaggedness begins to appear in the character strokes. There are also subtle and not-so-subtle details incorporated into the design that gives it its authenticity. If it is set above 24-point, these details become apparent and detract from the handwritten, and spontaneous quality of the design.
