Nadine is a very elegant Script. I based the design on a set of initials that Bernard Naudin designed around 1920 for Deberny & Peignot. I gave the font a name “Nadine” because that sounds similar to Naudin.
Naudin is in my opinion one of the most underestimated designers of that time. Cassandre and Jackno were his colleagues at D&P but seemed to understand more about promoting themselves. Naudin was not designing fonts that were in fashion in those days, he prefered to do his own thing.
Since he only drew one set of initials I had to do the rest. I designed three versions to be used together.
First a Normal version with capitals that are not so elaborate and open lowercase letters; it is very useful for longer copy.
Second an Extra version whose capitals stick pretty much to the originals, but with slightly narrower and different lowercase letters as well as Medieval ciphers.
Third a StartEnd version, that gives you very elaborate capitals to start a text and lowercase end-letters to finish a paragraph with.
Only the Normal Script can be used on its own.
The Extra should absolutely be mixed with the Normal cut to get more variation.
The StartEnd cut can not be used on its own, the letters won’t fit together.
All three cuts should always be used together.
So I figured, I only sell them together but for a fair price.
