Thumbelena Display is a whimsical serif family that includes Italic and Heavy styles. It is inspired by uncial letterforms, folklore, and forest plant life. The name is combination of the classic fairytale “Thumbelina” (inspired by its fantastical proportions) and the designer’s sister, Lena. The font family creates an atmosphere of warm magick, making it great for everything from labeling potions to branding & editorial design.
