Some time ago I stumbled upon a little book called ‘De Sprookjeshoorn’ (‘Horn of Fairy Tales’) by Anton Eijkens (1920 – 2012). It was published in 1946 and contains several authentic and unique fairy tales – unfortunately unreadable to modern children, as the language used is out of date. What caught my eye was the handwritten font on the cover of the booklet. Closet Skeleton is a fairytale font inspired by the one I found on the cover of De Sprookjeshoorn. It comes with several curly alternates and some end-ligatures as well. I added an ‘old fashioned’ ampersand and a modern one, so you can choose which one to use. Apart from that, Closet Skeleton comes with a closet choc-a-block full of diacritics.
