I really like Wales; I like the culture, the people and the language. I also like the Welsh legends, especially the ones about King Arthur and Merlin. I am reading a book about Arthur right now, so when I was working on this font, I wanted to give it a Welsh name.
Caerphilly is a town in Southern Wales and is home to an immense 13th century castle (Castell Caerffili).
Caerphilly font is based on a 16th century manuscript. I kept the glyphs rough, to give it ‘ye olde’ look.
Comes with a hoard of diacritics, a bunch of double letter ligatures and some alternate glyphs as well.
