Finally in the wild...

Four years ago, my friend Marius Valdes and I built a typeface based on some lettering he had done. I intended to release it to a wider audience, but for various reasons, it never happened. The lettering set wasn't complete and there were parts I wanted to tweak. I think that only four or five people ended up with copies.

But people that saw Valdes Clarendon wanted to know where they could get a copy.


A few months ago, I spent some time and finished Valdes Clarendon. I cleaned up the characters and refined the spacing. I added missing characters and OpenType alternates.

Valdes Clarendon is finally in the wild and available at MyFonts. The normal price will be $10. But until the end of September, I'm offering an introductory price of $7 - 30% off.

And if you like Valdes Clarendon, but you might also like Valdes Poster Sans, a free font available here at Sketchbook B.
