Designed by David Kerkhoff, Whalebone is a brush display font family. This typeface has two styles and was published by Hanoded.
For some reason I had to think of Moby Dick (the classic book by Herman Melville) when I was busy working on this font. No, I don’t live near the sea, nor do I have a pet whale. It’s just one of those things…
Whalebone (named after Captain Ahab’s prosthetic leg) is a handmade, all caps brush font. It wasn’t actually made with a brush; I used a broken satay skewer and Chinese ink.
Whalebone comes with discretionary ligatures for double letter combinations.
