Egyptian Revival

EGYPTIAN REVIVAL is an exotic retro font with geometric flourishes. It was inspired by the single word EGYPT on an old book, sketched at left. It’s named for a style of European decorative arts that uses Egyptian motifs. I imagined I was an early 20th-century designer, influenced by Art Deco and the discovery of King Tut’s tomb. There are regular and inline versions, each including some alternate letterforms.

EgyptianRevival_imgI made this sketch from the cover of a book of 19th-century photographs in the Dallas Museum of Art.

Includes caps and some alternates, punctuation, numbers, and international characters.
