思わず Fantasy と打ってみたくなる、ノスタルジックで人懐っこい雰囲気がある「ケルティック」。 大きなボウルを持つ P と R が特徴で、特に & はすばらしいフォルム。

University Roman との関係が不明であったが、Robert Trogman のブログに以下のように書かれていたので抜粋した。

Many fonts appearing from various font libraries had their first exposition in the Facsimile Font library and reappear as a font with a different name. For example: Celtic and Celtic Bold reappeared as University Roman.

I show a font called Celtic that I made from a lettering style that was shown in the Speedball lettering book printed in the early 1930’s. I then made a bold version with some additional swash characters. 10 years after the release, Linotype made the font under the name of University Roman and changed the design of a couple of characters. This happened many times more than I could write about. Time heals all wounds they say and so I have learned to accept the copying of my fonts.
