These are my top picks for the most gorgeous typefaces ever designed. These are elaborate and at times exuberant, with flourishes and swashes that will take your breath away. When a flourished word or sentence is required, these are the typefaces to consider. Some of them have a playful & casual mood, others are truly elegant and sophisticated.
These are all premium fonts, and so you will have to purchase them (as I did). The designers of these fonts spend weeks or months on every character, every glyph! Every little line and curve is work of art. Plus, with premium fonts you also get access to alternate glyphs (imagine 8 versions of each letter) and sometimes even gorgeous ornaments. All you need is an open-type aware application, like Photoshop or Illustrator.
My own font library has almost one thousand of these premium fonts. I like to invest in them because they give such a huge difference in the quality of my designs. And yes, I’m also absolutely obsessed with beautiful typefaces! I may have purchased a font (or two, or twelve) just because I found it pretty!
Here’s where to find each font:
Adios Script Pro. Affair. Aphrodite Pro. Belluccia Pro. Burges Script. Cantoni Pro. Carolyna Pro Black. Feel Script. Melany Lane. Parfumerie Script. Peoni Pro. Plebeya Pro. Poem Script Pro. Wishes Script Pro
Tip: if you want full access to the glyphs and alternates, always get the Pro version of the font.
Ooh, so pretty! You are the ultimate curator of pretty fonts Pat!
hahaha! Glad you like them Chrissy! I’m a font addict, that’s why!

You’re so sweet to add my Cantoni Pro and Belluccia Pro fonts to the list!
I design with designers and DIY users in mind, so it’s nice to know when I am meeting those needs. All the best to you!
What can I say? I’m a fan of your work Debi! Thank you for designing such beautiful fonts! I’ve used them a lot of times on my projects, and my clients always have nice things to say about them!
