Forgotten Playbill

Designed by Lauren Ashpole, Forgotten Playbill is a display font published by Lauren Ashpole.

Years ago, I came across a vintage playbill and was struck by its lettering.
The detailed floral pattern surrounded by thick outlines stayed in my mind even though the play’s name and cast have faded.
I finally tried to recreate the style from memory and Forgotten Playbill is the result.
While all letters are actually capitals, the uppercase rotate slightly counterclockwise and the lowercase slightly clockwise.

While all letters are actually capitals, the uppercase rotate slightly counterclockwise and the lowercase slightly clockwise. I suggest alternating between the two to reproduce my mystery inspiration.
