Golden Age is a restoration of an old font from the 30’s, with the missing glyphs added using details from the few existing ones. In respect for the old style the design does not interfere too much in spacing or shapes, to keep it as genuine as possible.
In the raw versions the Hash is replaced by the “Numero” sign and the Ampersand by the “AND” catchword, just to add an extra reference to the period. The Restored version is extended to a large number of catchwords, specific graphic elements and icons.
Overall, even with its wide letters and serifs, the font acts really well on curves, it’s almost like it’s made for circles / stamps. The italic version has no significant differences, this was created only to allow placing the text diagonally, at 9 degrees.
Open type features include ligatures, generated arrows and stylistic alternates, among others. For example a lowercase followed by underscore will turn into an underlined character. For more details see the preview attached to the trial version.
Note that the textured versions (Regular and Italic) have only 540 characters, up to the number of the Restored version’s glyphs the characters in the map are most probably replaced by the browser default.
