Background

The Deliscript fonts won the 2010 “Certificate of Excellence in Type Design” from the Type Directors Club, and were also selected by jury to appear in Typography Annual 1, the January/February 2011 issue of Communication Arts.

Although initially inspired by the neon sign in front of Canter’s Delicatessen in Los Angeles, the design of Deliscript Upright and Deliscript Slant soon took on a life of its own“and its own distinctive look. Like its sibling Metroscript, Deliscript has many features that expand its usability such as the the variable length tails which can be accessed in 6 different styles, and the never before seen crossbars which can be extended outward in either direction from the lower case “t”. Throw in the special “WordLogos”, tons of ligatures and foreign accented characters, and you have a recipe for typesetting that approaches the look of hand-lettering. For a better understanding of its unique features please download The Deliscript User Manual.

All the above features are accessible from Deliscript’s two OpenType fonts. Also included in the same package is a folder of fourteen Deliscript fonts (7 Upright, 7 Slant) specifically designed for those who only have applications that are not OpenType compatible. By installing the fonts from this folder instead of the OpenType folder, anyone will be able to access all of Deliscript’s unique features.
