While working on signage for a historical museum, Frank Heine
happened upon a piece of handwriting from 1799 which he found fascinating. He attempted to digitise it, starting with a strongly slanting script font, which was later joined by a Roman. As the heterogeneous fonts can nevertheless be mixed successfully, Dalliance invites interesting typographical experiments – not least thanks to its alternative and flourished characters, and its ligatures and ornaments.
Like all of Heine’s typefaces, Dalliance
is characterised by a love of detail and quality.
