Phaeton is an amazing new typeface with a Victorian flavor, reminiscent of a time long ago and far, far out west, when energy tonics — fortified with various energizers, sarsaparillas, and pepsin-extracts — were the norm. Phaeton was created by illustrator Kevin Cornell and converted into a font by Randy Jones.
Featuring cupped serifs and ball terminals on some characters. The font’s nearly 600 characters includes a large number of alternates, ornaments, decorative banners, picto-glyphs, swash capitals, and 49 wordmark glyphs for ‘and,’ ‘the,’ ‘with’ and many more.
Fantastic. (via @jasonsantamaria)
