About Radley

Creator:

License: SIL Open Font License, 1.1

Radley is based on lettering originally drawn and designed for woodcarved titling work. It was later digitized and extended to be used on the web. Radley is a practical face, based on letterforms used by hand carvers who cut letters quickly, efficiently, and with style. It can be used for both titling and text typography.

The basic letterforms in Radley grew out of sketching and designing directly into wood with traditional carving chisels. These were scanned and traced into FontForge and cleaned up digitally, then the character set was expanded. There is something unique about carving letters into wood with traditional hand tools, and hopefully Radley carries some of the original spirit of these hand carved letterforms.
