Humerus_filmHUMERUS is a spooky/funny font with letters formed of loosely arranged bones, more in the spirit of a Halloween party than real horror. Think of “funny bone”, “rib tickling” and “numbskulls,” all appropriate to the inspiration for this font, the opening credit sequence of Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948, directed by Charles Barton, art directed by Hilyard M. Brown and Bernard Herzbrun, with animated sequences by the great Walter Lantz, who may have had a hand in the credits as well.

The Regular font has the bone shapes defined by calligraphic outlines; there’s also a Solid font that can be layered beneath and make another color to create a fill, as in the images above. In each font, the caps lean slightly left, the lowercase slightly right; If yOu TyPe LiKe tHiS, you get a jolly jangling bones effect.

Each font contains caps, numbers, punctuation, and international characters.
