Weingut Ampersand

via creativepro

“While the word ’Weingut’ may not sound particularly lyrical to the ears of English speakers, the Weingut font family is certainly pleasing to the eyes. This decorative display typeface, created by Georg Herold-Wildfellner, blooms with delicate buds, leaves, and tendrils.”

“Weingut Script Flourish is a decorative display font with high contrasts, perfectly drawn to the tiniest details. The font is trimmed to fairly large font sizes and is highly suitable for chapter titles or book jackets as well as Headlines, Invitations and wine labels :), although also impressing with an astounding legibility in small typesettings. Inspired by the hand drawn Blätterschrift from the 19th century Mettenleiter’s Schriftenmagazin, its basic structure is related to the English Script. The creative process started in summer 2009 and after 600 hours of work, over a 2 year period, Weingut now unfolds to reveal all its charms.”
