Designed by K. Pease, Anachrony is an art deco and blackletter font family. This typeface has seven styles and was published by Cerulean Stimuli .
Reminiscent of circuitry and wrought iron, Anachrony constructs the forms of an Old English Blackletter with the strokes of a Modern Geometric Sans, and lands in the vicinity of Art Deco. For such an unusual chimera, the Anachrony family is legible and versatile. Its glyphs cover pan-European Latin, Greek, and a wealth of symbols including arrows, zodiac, planets, chess, suits, and circled numbers. It is also packed with Opentype features:
Small Capitals: Of similar proportions to the default numerals, tall enough to be a suitable choice in place of regular capitals.
All Caps Forms: In addition to the four usual types of numerals, there are numerals and currency symbols that match the capitals.
Swash: A leading curly swash on capitals, and fancy looped ascenders in the lowercase that are handled by over a hundred standard ligatures where they would collide.
Style Set 01: Romanized forms. Especially recommended for all caps. Plainer A/M/T/V/W/Y, J/Q reined in to the baseline, and alternate g.
Style Set 02: Masthead forms. Old-fashioned capitals with descenders and that lower left dealy. Also f/x/z/ß in a more traditional fraktur mode.
Style Set 03: Mild embellishments. Tall bifurcated ascenders and descenders.
Style Set 04: Extravagant swash descenders.
Style Set 05: Final swashes for the end of a word.
Style Set 06: Converts capital letters into the corresponding connected Roman numerals. Seemed like it could be useful sometime.
Easy swooshes: Standard ligatures allow you to type two to seven commas in a row to append an assortment of sweeping or ending swashes.
Catchwords: In Anachrony Royale, turn on Discretionary Ligatures for a variety of decorative articles and prepositions.
