Font Love, Vol. XXX: Jacques and Gilles

Happy Friday everyone! I am so excited for today's post because I have found one of the most lovely fonts to grace my computer screen + be available for download + be reasonably priced. I wasn't even planning on a Font Love post today but this news was too good to pass up and I just had to share it. If anyone is DIY-ing their wedding invitations soon, this font would be a great alternative to paying for custom calligraphy. So let me introduce you to Jacques and Gilles... 

Are you impressed? Did your heart skip a beat like mine did?! Jacques and Gilles is the latest from calligraphy pro Emily Conners of Emily Lime Design. Miss Emily is responsible for other personal favorites like Carolyna and Peoni. The curls and swashes are always so romantic and feminine but I love the modern take on hand-lettering with this new one. And like all of Emily's fonts, Jacques and Gilles looks so custom.

Emily describes her new font as having a "split personality." She says, "Jacques’ persona comes to life when typing in all lowercase letters. And Gilles’ when using all uppercase." And then of course you can use them together so there are all kinds of possibilities here. I have already had a little fun with J&G but am looking forward to exploring all the 300+ glyphs this weekend.

And now for the exciting news! Jacques and Gilles will normally be priced at $34 (still well worth it in my opinion) but since it's a new release, you can get it for only $17 until May 7th. Hard to pass up 50% off isn't it?

So have you fallen in love with this font yet? I might sound a bit obsessed but I can't stop staring. I want to write it all over everything. It is my new favorite thing.
