Poignant_filmPOIGNANT is an elegant titling font that combines aspected of a Didone (“modern”) with calligraphic flourishes.

Inspired by the hand-lettered titles of certain Twentieth Century Fox films such as All About Eve (1950), Gentleman’s Agreement (1947), and Niagara (1953)–all art-directed by Lyle Wheeler, perhaps a clue to the original hand.

Each font includes caps, lower case, numbers, punctuation, and international characters.
