The Nocturne Book font is based on an alphabet from a mid-1920s art deco book. The original seemed to have tapering strokes but it was too small to be sure; I made all strokes parallel & orthogonal and slightly modified the original in a number of other ways to bring it into the 21st Century. The designers of the original were Paul Carlyle and Guy Oring.
Nocturne has all the elegance of the Deco fonts of the 1930s. It recalls the romantic, sophisticated Zeitgeist of the early 20th century, that nostalgic time “between the wars”.
Nocturne Book, which, with its higher x height and slightly wider characters, is extremely legible and suitable for small size text.
