Oak Street

Oak StreetThere’s a little restaurant in an old house on a sidestreet in Rockland, Maine, called Cafe Miranda. The staff is friendly, the setting intimate, and the appetizer a basket of hot bread fresh from a brick oven. Its ample menu features such entries as “Quasi-Cassoulet” and “Gentle Sole.” It’s been a favorite place to dine out over the years. But the menu got photocopied once too often, and Cindy’s personable handlettering got faded and broken. So I took matters into my own hands. And here’s what I subsequently delivered to the folks at the little restaurant on Oak Street. You, too, can simulate Cindy’s rather heavy handlettering style. All versions have a full character set; the OpenType release adds true small caps, numerous ligatures, and Central/Eastern European alphabets—more than 750 glyphs in all. US$29.
