“Talkin’ to myself and feelin’ old
Sometimes I’d like to quit
Nothin’ ever seems to fit
Hangin’ around
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down”

-The Carpenters, Rainy Days & Mondays

One of the terms I learnt during my GCSE English Literature was that of the “pathetic fallacy”, the attribution of human feelings and responses to inanimate things or animals, especially in art and literature (Source: Wikipedia).  We were taught this with particular reference to the weather, and that’s what I’ve since associated with the term.  Well, who likes Mondays?  This font, Rainy Day Vandal, by KC Fonts, is available free for personal use.  Just click on the image on the right to go to the download page.

Font Of The Day #7 – 11th June 2017 – Sicero

SiceroI don’t know if it’s just me, but Sundays have a bit of a stale feeling about them.  It could be a leftover from my childhood, when Sundays were as boring as hell.  We had to go to church, and all the shops were shut.  And we had a roast dinner and then jam sandwiches at teatime.  Even on the days when it was worth going into town, it was like stepping back in time.  Today’s font captures that feeling nicely, with its pretty quaintness.  It’s called Sicero, designed by Konstantine Studio.  It’s a sponsored one, but very reasonably priced.  You can download it from MyFonts.com for the small sum of £13.99.

There’s always time for a bit of Morrissey, and here is my gift to you!  Every Day is like Sunday; pathetic fallacy indeed.

It’s the weekend!  And it’s time for a silly font!  Willy Wonka was created by Sharkshock, and you can find it on dafont.com.  It’s free for personal use, although you can donate to them via the site.  I always encourage users to do this – often you can acquire some incredible design work at a bargain price, and you’re ensuring that artists get paid for their work.  Credit where credit’s due, I say.  Click on the image on the right to go to the download page.
