Designed by Kathryn Podorsky, Vena Amoris is a script font published by Delve Fonts.
Kathryn Podorsky was inspired to create Vena Amoris by a letter written by her great-great-grandfather in response to a request to marry his daughter, Annie. The letter was not only beautiful contextually, but exquisitely penned and epitomized the delightful charm of the New Orleans people of the time.
Vena Amoris, or “Vein of Love” refers to a phrase coined by Henry Swinburne in his A Treatise of Espousal published in 1686. Vena Amoris also refers to the fourth finger on the left hand which was traditionally believed to contain a vein running directly to the heart, hence “the ring finger.”
As a digital font, Vena Amoris boasts an extensive Latin-based character set that supports 51 languages. Also included are stylistic and contextual alternates, ligatures, swash variants, oldstyle figures, and roman numerals and calligraphic words that will undoubtedly bring a dynamic quality to any setting.
All of those extras are driven by cleverly applied OpenType features allowing you to add harmony and calligraphic beauty to your layout.
