Caligo by Áron Jancsó

A self-confessed type addict, Áron Jancsó is the graphic designer behind today's font of choice. "Caligo is an Opentype typeface based on calligraphy done with a parallel pen," he says. "It's classic and elegant with a modern twist, featuring flared serifs, lots of ligatures and swashes.

"It has four styles: poster for large scale, text for small sizes and the corresponding italics. It's great for book cover and signage design where beauty and tradition are important. The font can be used for fashion, novels, magazines, and much more."

Caligo is available to try or buy from Gestalten Fonts.
