ABOUT







Paul Carlyle

Coauthor with Guy Oring of Letters and Lettering (1938) and Learning to Letter (1939). The former book was a big source of inspiration for Nick Curtis. For example, he created the typeface Shishka Bob NF (2005) based on the experimental calligraphy in that book. Quaint was digitized by PhotoLettering / House Industries as Quaint or Carlyle Quaint.

TaraBulbous NF (2008) is a fat-lettered font by Nick Curtis, also based on Carlyle-Oring lettering. Guinness Extra stout NF (1999, Nick Curtis) is also based on a Carlyle-Oring script. Kynges X NF (2004, Nick Curtis) is a blackletter typeface based on other work by Carlyle and Oring. Dathan Boardman made Afternoon Tea (2010) based on an art deco design from the book. Anton Scholtz created the art deco typeface Nocturne in 2012 based on work by Carlyle and Oring. The caps in Astoria Titling (Nick Curtis) are based on a 1938 typeface by Carlyle and Oring.
