KS Marina: A Greek polytonic dropcaps and ornaments font set

The KS Marina font family was inspired by the Basilii Synaxarion of the 17th century, (Vatican, Vat.gr.1613) and consists of eight groups (4+4) of dropcaps. The Normal version (One and Two), the Outlined version of the glyphs (Three and Four) and the Canvas version (Five, Six, Seven and Eight) which consists of the negative glyph forms of the previous ones on a monochrome canvas painting background. The font supports –in the present– only the Greek upper case alphabet, in every possible form of accentuation (monotonic or polytonic) as well as a variety of 29 decorative ornaments in two different designs.
Due to its detailed and complex design, KS Marina apparently works best in large sizes, like dropcaps, titles etc. For technical reasons, it is best to avoid using it in small font sizes (smaller than 24 pts).

  1. Dafont.com is a site where you can download a ton of free fonts. You can search for a specific typeface, or search by the type of lettering you want, whether it’s serif or sans serif, hand lettered or grunge style. You can also put in your own phrase to see how it looks in a particular font. A lot of these fonts are very decorative and many are handdrawn, so it’s not always the best place to search for body text fonts. Each selection also tells you whether your download is free for personal or commercial use. The download is easy – you get a zip file with the font file inside. Unzip, install, and you’re ready to go.

  3. Hi there! The smaller font under each word tells the actual name of the font. The "sparkling" one is called Sweet Pea font and the link is: http://www.dafont.com/sweet-pea.font

    Thanks!
