Delve Fonts LLC announced Wednesday the immediate availability of the new typeface Tuppence™ by the award-winning designer and author Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich. Variable versions, desktop, webfonts, and mobile app font licenses can be purchased at the company’s website at https://delvefonts.com/fonts/tuppence

Inspired by the London foundry Stephenson Blake typeface Blackfriars, designer extraordinaire Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich reimagined this quirky gem for today. de Vicq brought a more graceful appearance to the design and explored its reversed contrast nature with new weights while still retaining the warmth and character of its English primogenitor of the Victorian era. The proportions of the lowercase are decidedly wider and more geometric overall and the italics are imbued with more calligraphic flare. Tuppence includes a marvelous selection of catch words, swash capitals, ligatures, arrows, and over a hundred beautiful ornaments and symbols. Picture Tuppence used on beverage labels, greeting cards, posters, restaurant logos, and in other display mediums.

Delve Withrington, founder of Delve Fonts said: “Roberto skillfully reinterpreted a legacy design to resonate with what today’s designers want and expect from a font.”

This initial release of Tuppence has a complement of over 960 glyphs, supporting 224 languages including Vietnamese. Tuppence is a twelve font family featuring six weights ranging from ExtraLight to Bold and six italic counterparts. The Variable Font version of Tuppence leverages the new format to include all 12 styles and the option to use any custom instance (variations) between those 12 styles.

Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich is currently principal at his own design firm in San Francisco, CA, specializing in publications, restaurant design and branding. de Vicq speaks frequently on typography and design and is the author of several books featuring his own work. He has received numerous awards from the Art Directors Club, AIGA, Communication Arts, D&AD,  Eye, Graphis, How, Print, TDC and two Webby Awards.
