Background

amed after a famous cabaret performer, Delvard – in its details and proportions – is an entirely new series of fonts for text and display. Though the typefaces Nikola Djurek designs and licenses on this site are striking and versatile, Delvard clearly draws from an historic movement: the sinuous curves, geometries, and couplings of late nineteenth-century Art Nouveau.

Delvard’s letterforms are based on a charming, handwritten note that reads: “Proportion: 1:50, Month of March 1905” from which Djurek fashioned a set of capitals showcasing the shears, elevated crossbars, and angled segments associated with the typefaces and lettering of the period. Included are contextual alternates that substitute standard capitals for those with swash terminals or elongated strokes. There are also raised small capitals and characters that automatically fuse or nestle.
