Fontsy That…

The lettering style of Lancashire’s finest comic book artist and graphic novelist Bryan Talbot is finally at your beck and call thanks to the good graces of those awfully nice chaps at Comicraft, the US fonts company run by former Marvel UK writer-editor Richard Starkings.

Created for Bryan’s critically-acclaimed and top selling book Alice in Sunderland, Comicraft advises the Bryan Talbot font “will take you on a journey into delirium, through the looking glass of British underground comix into the complex world of experimental narrative techniques and bestow upon you semi-legendary cult status and prestigious awards from no less than the New York Times.*”

The new font is the latest in a long line of fonts specially created in the style of individual letterers or for special projects, joining the likes of the Dave Gibbons and Starkings own distinctive Hedge Backwards fonts in the Comicraft’s ever-expanding catalogue.

* Comicraft also advises results may differ if you are not actually Bryan Talbot.
