Salt&Spices Pro is a welcome addition to the ever popular modern calligraphy genre. Digitizing the many handwritten samples into a fully functional connected script was done with great precision, carefully guarding the authentic look and feel of vintage dip pen calligraphy.
Salt&Spices Pro is a very versatile 9 font family, consisting of 3 casual styles: Regular, Bold and Shadow. With 587 glyphs each, they offer great flexibility in customizing words and phrases to suit your personal taste. For instance: the appearance of initial and terminal letters can be customized using the glyph pallet. Contextual alternates, Swashes and Stylistic sets give you the ability to replace spaces by 3 alternate connecting spaces or add swashes to initial/terminal letters. Double letter ligatures help sustain the natural flow of handwriting.
In addition to the 3 calligraphic family members 3 SmallCaps Sans styles and 3 SmallCaps Serif styles were added. They all have 435 glyphs and match very well because they were designed using the same vintage nib. Each of the styles can add great variation to your designs and they supplement and support each other perfectly.
Add exceptional language support to all that and you have the perfect ingredient to spice up even the most demanding design project.
