Gelica

Designed by Dave Rowland, Gelica is a retro and serif font family. This typeface has fourteen styles and was published by Eclectotype Fonts.

When work started on the design of Gelica, there wasn’t the same glut of retroish soft serifs there is today, and if I’d managed to complete it quicker, it might have been more trendsetter than bandwagon jumper, but that’s the way it goes sometimes! I still think it’s useful and unique enough to be a worthwhile addition to your typographic arsenal.
Although obviously influenced by Cooper, it actually owes more to the lesser known Goudy Heavyface and Ludlow Black, particularly in the concave serifs. I wanted the family to be friendly and approachable, but not overly cutesy, and usability was always the prime concern. A nice weight range with matching italics was a must, along with useful OpenType features, and various figure styles.
This is a display family first and foremost, but is also comfortable at smaller sizes for longer copy, and so works well in a supporting role to a more exuberant titling font.
