About Jim Nightshade

Creator:

License: SIL Open Font License, 1.1

Certain calligraphic pen styles have always had a mysterious and almost dark vibe to them from my viewpoint. Jim Nightshade is one of those styles.

Named after a character from the story, "Something Wicked This Way Comes", Jim Nightshade is a flat nib calligraphic typestyle with charisma and a dark flair. Letterforms follow that of a traditional italic hand but with more angular strokes to accentuate the look.
