About the font

About the font Kessel

As I was designing Kamerik, I was coming up with numerous character variations. I considered offering these as alternatives within the one font, but decided that I wanted to organise thesm into a new font, namely Talbot Type Kessel.

It’s become quite popular to offer alternate characters within a font nowadays, but I’m not sure how often they get used, and if there are several variations on characters, they don’t always work well in certain combinations.

I had enough character variations to create two distinctly different flavours of Kessel.

Kessel 105 differs from Kamerik in several obvious ways — characters with angled strokes such as the upper case A and lower case v and w, include Deco-style, sharp points at the apex instead of being cut square, and terminals on characters such as C and s are oblique instead of horizontal.

Kessel 205 has all of the above, along with some more exaggerated Art Deco tendencies, including lowered horizontal cross bars and a crossed capital W.
