Font Love, Vol. XII

TGIFF type friends!  

Some great fonts have already been shared around the blogosphere this morning and I am about to share a few more of my favorites with you again.  Yep, that's right...I have two fonts today.  Consider it a special treat for mother's day.  One is completely free also!

The first is Pepito!

Isn't it lovely?  I just discovered Pepito this morning and that is probably because it just made its debut a few days ago.  Pepito is designed by Fenotype designer Emil Bertell and it is a non-connected version of Pepita Script.  I am in love with all the swashes and ornaments.

Pepito has a great set of stylistic and contextual alternates too so you get plenty of variation in the type.  I think all of those swashes would make this font great for invitation design.  

Oh and the super awesome news is that Pepito is on sale.  Normally it is $20 but right now you can get it for only $13!  Both prices are a total steal but I love the $13 price tag.  A perfect gift for the font loving Momma in your life.  

The second font I wanted to share today is kind of a joke but it totally makes me smile.  Have you guys seen Llama Font yet?

Llama Font is pretty genius in my book.  I have to thank my bestie Elysse for showing it to me.  We have a thing with llamas and frequently share llama-ish finds with each other.  The obsession probably stems from our mutual love of The Emperor's New Groove.  Does anyone else understand the amazing amaznigness that is this movie?  If you do, we'll be instant friends.  Also, I can do a mean impression of Yzma from this movie.  If you don't know what this means than please disregard.  :)

I'm sayin' it in llama!

 So yeah, that's Pepito and Llama Font, two great fonts for today.  If you want to see more type (possibly more of the serious nature) than be sure to check out my font friends:

Happy Friday everyone and Happy Mother's Day!  What special things are you all planning?  I need to get organized because my Momma definitely deserves some love this year.  Have a great weekend!

Ha love it! That llama font is a trip! And what a pretty steal that Pepito is.

Welcome Vicki!! Heading over to update our links and check out your post now- LOVE new font friends!

Haha! The llama one makes me giggle. And it totally reminds me of Napoleon Dynamite! Pepito will have to be mine as well- my cc is going to get a lot of use today. Thanks for the share!

Wow! Love this! Is this designed by the same foundry that made Verner? Must purchase :)

Um, I think we are also obsessed with llamas because my family has freakin' alpacas! Haha. I think V is my favorite letter because it reminds me of Paco & Nacho. (Next we need to find a ferret font...)

Anybody who appreciates The Emperor's New Groove AND The Hot Chick is DEFINITELY admitted to movie night, as long as they don't bring anything that's swimming in gravy!
