Takoshi from Black Fox Foundry

Today's font of choice is Takoshi from Canadian type foundry, Black Box. Available from Ten Dollar Fonts, the design is described as "a finely crafted modern interpretation of 15-17th century Cyrillic writings.

"Takoshi has a balanced contrast of thick and thin and sharp triangular shapes. The brush-like aesthetic gives Takoshi a heavy natural character that suits logos, headings and large graphics across a range of print or screen applications."

Takoshi is available to purchase from Ten Dollar Fonts.
