Happy Font Friday blog world! Today I have old movies on my mind. I would love to spend my afternoon curled up watching a few old favorites, wouldn't you? I absolutely love seeing the old costumes and sets and being taken back to a world of old Hollywood glamour, a time when men always wore suits and ladies looked so fancy and sophisticated. Cary Grant is one of my all-time favorite actors and his witty charm always steals the show for me. I have been desperately wanting to watch To Catch A Thief lately.
Ok, I guess Grace Kelly doesn't hurt either. She was so gorgeous and classy. All of her costumes in this film were amazing. The costume design was done by Edith Head, a famous Hollywood designer who won eight Academy Awards for her work. But the show stopper has to be this white dress (the one on the right):
This is a favorite movie of mine and no matter how many times I see it, it never gets old. The sweeping shots of the French Riviera appeal to the traveler in me and only increase my ever-growing wanderlust. There is something about those beach shots though. I can almost feel the sun and beachy breezes. Oh my, and don't those black and white umbrellas look familiar!
At this point in the post you may be asking, "Umm, when are we going to talk about fonts?" Right now! I do have a font to share today and it is inspired by the old movie titles (see, I tied this all in). Let me introduce Lakeside:
Lakeside, a 1940s style script by Mark Simonson Studio, is "inspired by the hand-lettered titles in the film noir classic 'Laura'." The font features three different cap styles so you get plenty of options with Lakeside. I love the old-time feel.
Lakeside is so nostalgic and it makes me want to pull into a drive-in movie theater and eat popcorn. Yum!
