Designed by Ingo Zimmerman, Anatole France is a art deco font published by ingoFonts.
A semi-bold, decorative poster type in the style of Art Déco.
A few fonts already exist which have been drawn in accordance with the exact same principles. But these are just drawn - only drawn. The ANATOLE FRANCE retains the hand script character in spite of its stringent composition.
An old portfolio of script patterns from the 1920s or 1930s includes among its pages one with a handwritten poster script, as was very typical for the 1920s.
To begin with, there is the emphasized decorative character, which stands out due to stressing the stems. Next, the attempt to portray the character forms with the help of a few but always recurring basic elements is driven to the limits. Theoretically speaking, that which should have led to a contrived, geometrically determined type, obtains a likeable and pleasant look through the ductus of the manually guided brush.
