Adorn Roman is one of twenty fonts available in the Adorn family of seven display fonts, four script designs, monograms, ornaments, illustrations, banners, frames, and catchwords.
While each font in the carefully orchestrated Adorn collection can stand alone, the particular combination of contrasting scripts, display fonts, romans, and the multitude of stylized fonts in Adorn’s extraordinary toolkit makes each designer’s creation one of a kind. Buy the entire collection, 20 fonts for $99.
Adorn Roman is both a display and text typeface marked by its traditional calligraphic hand. Technically it is a humanist sans, with tapering stems and high contrast in its thicks and thins. It was created with a chisel-edged calligraphy pen, and even digitized it has the look of what a designer might create with a calligraphic tool. With more texture and character than you’d typically find in body text, it brings a softer, warmer look for small groupings of words. The lowercase adds a practicality to the collection with its ability to convey information without straining the eye.
