Background

Despite its initially flirty appearance, Romance Fatal Serif possesses a masculine, steampunk feel. For instance, the word “Duel” looks sweet until the viewer realizes the e is drifting down, ready to second the l should the first shot go horribly wrong. A simple sentence like “You are invited to dine” lingers on the page like an anxious suitor, waiting for his reply. Even “Craft Fair” has a hint of mystery when set large. This is a font that can showcase words making it ideal for bold display, although it also plays well in short bursts at 10 points.
