This is originally inspired by a typeface i've seen on a wedding/congratulation card. In the process of crafting the glyphs it turned out more and more like a font, perfect for horror, goth emo stuff. A little bit as you know them from Tim Burton movies/introductions. So this is why it's name is an homage to Tim Burton and his morbid, ingenious and unique way of visualising movies. Enjoy! Harr, harr... It also contains some ligatures (which i integrated into the sample) and alternative glyphs. Like for example an "o" without thedecoration in the middle... Alternative "a" = @ Alternative "z" = $ Alternative "o" = % Alternative "j" = ] Double "t" = # Double "f" = | Double "l" = _


Really impressive

Cool work kix. I think it lives up to its name quite well.

Tall and slender Gothic letters. I like you've taken care of the small details. Your excellent demo picture enhances the creepy-freaky, sinister atmosphere. 10/10

I seems it was made by nails scratching a wooden door. Brrr, I'm shivering as I am writing this...

Very well executed. Pun intended.

Absolutely beautiful, delicate and otherworldly ... a bit like Helena Bonham Carter :)

Astounding! I love the whole aesthetic. What a great homage. One tiny nitpick with the sample, if possible could you remove the (I'm guessing) copy protected illustration at the top. I think the sample works without it anyway.

I think the same thing happens to many people, I am crazy about Tim Burton. This calligraphy, elegant and fine, reminds me of everything that surrounds the disturbing world of Burton just to see her. Great job. A whole 10.

thanks everyone :)

I tried to erase the sample above, but it doesn't work... feel free to delete, fs staff!
Comment by kix 5th april 2010
Kix, I had the same problem of deleting. I found a solution, it works : click on edit, then upload a new image, then click on SAVE, and then the new has replaced the old one. But just deleting does not work.

Very Nice!
wedding/congratulation card?
Let me guess someone from the Addams Family was getting married, right?

Pretty freaking amazing... This spidery irregularity, the awesome terminals and the small decorative details make this look so burtonesque that I actually I think it would have done a better job on the "The Nightmare Before Christmas" poster than the font they used. (And I have that poster in my living room, which means the font must already be good for me to tolerate it.:P).
Great numerals too...

Alle in allem ist das wohl mein Favourite unter deinen bisherigen Werken... Und das will was heissen. :)
