Serif Font: Daring Regular [STD]

Daring Regular

Daring was as CHILDS designed by Hermann Ihlenburg in 1892 for MacKellar, Smiths and Jordan, one of many type houses that were amalgamated into American Type Founders (ATF) later that year.

With its unmistakable 19th-century characteristics - swirls, loops, and surprising letter shapes - Daring is a natural for display situations that demand high drama.
Daring/Childs proved to be one of the more popular and enduring of the American-designed Art Nouveau display faces of the period, appearing frequently in ads in various publications. For this digital version, the character set has been expanded to include alternates, accented characters, punctuation and currency symbols.

A book consists of five elements: text, font, printing ink, paper and cover. Our wish is to create a unit out of these elements that naturally convinces, that does not serve a fashion trend but strives for timeless value. Free from coincidence and mood, as far as human conditionality is able, these works know only the goal of fitting in worthily into the high heritage that is given to us in hand and responsibility.

But I must explain to you how all this mis­taken idea of de­noun­cing plea­sure and prai­sing pain was born and I will give you a com­ple­te ac­count of the sys­tem, and ex­pound the ac­tu­al teach­ings of the great ex­plo­rer of the truth, the ma­ster buil­der of hu­man happ­iness. No one re­jects, dis­likes, or av­oids plea­sure it­self, be­cause it is plea­sure, but be­cause those who do not know how to pursue plea­sure ra­tio­nally en­coun­ter con­se­quen­ces that are ex­tre­me­ly pain­ful. Nor again is there any­one who lov­es or pur­sues or de­sires to ob­tain pain of it­self, be­cause it is pain, but be­cause occas­ional­ly ci­rcum­stan­ces occur in which toil and pain can pro­cure him some great plea­sure.
