FF Tartine Script – choosing logotype for Font Whore

I bought the fontwhore.com domain a while ago with the intention of putting up a typography-oriented journal. Though the more fonts I see, the fewer I respect, it’s a pretty apt description.

Tartine Script is an understated script with personality, like a more-connected, heavier Cutiful. I’ve got the normal and heavy weights… went with normal for the logo.

Quite elegant… not something I’d want to use for body text, but as a display font it works great. Very legible, a little embellishment on the capitals lends it some flair, and great for offsetting the small contemporary fonts in the WordPress theme I selected.
