Grace Roman was drawn as an exercise by Paul Harpin, immediately after designing his first typeface Laura which was released to raise funds for Cancer charities and became the foundation of the buyfontssavelives campaign. Laura was Harpin’s niece, another cancer victim. Her middle name was Grace.
“I wanted to try my hand at a classical typeface”, says Harpin. “This font is much more like her, she was very elegant and kind.”
The font conveys a classic Roman styling with refined delicacy. Before Roman letters were carved into stone they were drawn first with a brush. “Hopefully, with this more painterly approach, it will beat its well-known rivals.”
