Lady Somerset is a dainty, modern interpretation of stone carved type originally found on a memory marker in Bath Abbey. The smooth ball terminals and sharp symmetrical, serifs are meant to make it more modern, playful, and fun, while still being a comfortable and readable text typeface. The name is a cheeky homage to the town where this typeface was inspired which is also where the show Bridgerton is filmed.
Lady Somerset was originally designed to be used on travel brochures. The expanded family’s intent is so that the entire travel brochure - the headlines, sub heads, and body text can all be used so that the pieces are beautiful, functional, and readable.
