LHF Silent Movie

LHF Silent Movie font set
Lettering for movie titles was a challenge for the lettering artist of the early 1900's. Since film is transparent, any touching up or over stroking with the brush resulted in a more opaque appearance in that particular area. So a "monotone" style was adopted to eliminate this. This enabled the artist to paint each letter without the need to stroke the letters twice. The result was a more uniform appearance.

LHF Silent Movie has been created by carefully studying the styles of these artists. The set Includes 2 fonts. Suggested uses include greeting cards, signs and old labels. LHF Silent Movie invokes a spirit of the early 1900's while remaining quite easy to read and surprisingly versatile.
