Jazzy Caveman

Lily with the letter JFor the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I’m having Fun with Fonts. Each day I’ll feature a few I like based on either the look of the font or its name. I’ll also pick a font to inspire one of my tweet tales

I get a kick out of handwriting fonts because they seem to go against the very nature of fonts. Handwriting is supposed to be a personal and unique thing – with experts able to identify who wrote a sample and other specialists claiming they can describe someone’s personality through his/her handwriting because of the variations. But the purpose of a font is to make all the letters look the same, so it’s like the very opposite of handwriting. But there are still a ton of handwriting fonts out there, from the messy to the elegant. I especially like this Jane Austen one. I have no idea if it looks anything like her actual handwriting, but I can totally picture the original manuscript of Pride and Prejudice written in this. If I type my novels in this font, I wonder if I’ll have the same success?

Although it’s a busy font, I like how well both the jungle and rock aspects are incorporated into the Jungle Rock font.

I picked Joao Improvisations because I hadn’t seen one like it yet, with the way the smaller versions of each letter are echoed behind the main letter.

And we already know from previous picks how much I like swirls and curlicues, so that’s why I’m showcasing Jelly Swirls

I love the name of the font I’m using for today’s tweet tale inspiration: Jazzy Caveman. Those are two words I’d never imagined I’d see together, and they conjure all kinds of giggle-inducing images.

He foresees awards after finding a Neanderthal encased in ice. Too bad the body froze in that position–the jazz hands look silly in photos.
 
What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? How Jovial is Lily with her letter J?
