Font Crush : Reina
From the designer :
"Reina, a didone font, inspired in the sweet letters of calligraphy and typography masters of our past; such as Didot, Bodoni and the incredible Herb Lubalin. Aiming to incorporate the decorative accolades from the Blackletter and Copperplate styles of calligraphy into a Modern Roman typeface." [MAXIMILIANO R. SPROVIERO]
Reina means 'Queen' and you can see the regalness of the font coming through with the swashes and ligatures -

Reina was designed by Lian Types (one of my favorites!) and is available here.
As you may have assumed I have a thing for fonts. They come in all shapes and sizes with elaborate swashes and elegant details. The right font can easily make or break a design. Every Friday, I’ll share some of my favorites and recent purchases here, hoping to inspire a typography addiction in everyone.
For additional font inspiration check out these ladies: Jenna from Little Bit Heart, Lauren from Lauren Elise Crafted, Steph from Bubblerock, Jenny from Hank + Hunt, Kerry from Super Swoon , Jen from Blush Printables and Alexandra & Craig from The Aerialist Press.
I try to keep my font sheet updated with recent purchases, but if you see a font you love on here and would like to incorporate it into your designs just let me know!
