Forestelly is a premium modern calligraphy connected font that is made for wedding invitations, envelope art and especially small creative businesses logos (like photographers, calligraphers, artists, handcrafted items creators, Etsy sellers...)
Forestelly comes in two font styles - normal and bold (you get 2 fonts for one price) and 23 left and right flourish swatches for both versions. Normal style is more modern and looks beautiful especially in bigger font sizes - it's great for both screen and print. Bold style has more calligraphy look. Swatches are in separate font and therefore are very easy to use in any software (like MS Word). You don't need any advanced software with open type features to use those beautiful swashes!
Open type features (in software like Illustrator, Indesign or Photoshop) come handy when you want to use ligatures though.
Yes, both styles of Forestelly are full of ligatures like ff, th, tl, fl, mn, aa, bb, cc, dd, ee... Basically when there are 2 of the same letters next to each other, your software uses a ligature so those 2 letters looks not exactly the same which gives your text more realistic "hand written" look.
23 left swashes + 23 right swashes = 529 unique combinations!
