Amethyst by Molly Jacques Erickson Besotted Blog

A day without internet is like a day without…(insert worse case scenarios here).  Seriously, I lived in the middle of nowhere and my internet was abacus slow but being in a bustling metropolis without internet is practically painful. Alas, I am back on-line and in time to announce Molly Jacques Erickson has just launched a new font-Amethyst that I think you are going to adore! Oh, and the price? She’s practically giving it away!  I love all of Molly’s fonts but this has immediately risen to the top as my favorite of hers. It has a nice simplicity to it and there are so many letterforms that I like (crazy for the ‘A’ and ‘B’ that never happens).  I can’t wait to start working with it! I think this font is so easy to incorporate into a future project, it is very legible and would be an excellent alternative for envelope addressing for holiday send-outs. Holiday?  I know, it seems too early yet I have it constantly on my mind for the shop (I need to plan ahead with baby b. arriving during my busy season!)

I am working on another wonderful lettering artist interview that I shall put up tomorrow and with Molly’s new font launch I am plenty inspired to get practicing and after you read this interview I think you may just as motivated!

  1. Omg! Thanks so much for the update on this beautiful new font. Love it! I think this one will be the next font I’ll buy. Btw, I know how it feels not to have any internet, but to not have a good working computer for like a moth is totally depressing. Once I get myself situated, I think I’ll go ahead and purchase this pretty font. I already have some ideas for future projects. :)
    Have a lovely weekend, Tristan!

    1. Carmen, ah, yes to not have a working computer would be equally as taxing!!! Hopefully the price stays the same on this font it is a STEAL! Let me know how you end up using it!

  2. Out of all the fonts you have posted that I have seen, this is the most beautiful and tempting to purchase. I love hands with a great balance between angles and curves, something I find difficult to achieve.

    1. Paige, I agree this is one of the best for sure, it’s very readable, not too rounded, not too sharp and very much on trend for right now and the price (if I can say again) is outstanding!

  3. Love this new font. I knew I would before I even opened it as amethyst is my birthstone! I am in the process of getting a new logo and I am thinking this might be the one. Thank you so much for posting. Your blog is the one I look forward to!

  4. Beautiful typeface! Perfect for the festive season :) I love the Winter Collection typefaces too – especially the cute little illustrations! x

    1. I agree Megan, it’s one of my faves and I am still so surprised that it is priced so well! I just love it (and your blog title looks pretty + simple and just lovely!)

  5. Are Amethyst and Asterism the same? I went looking to purchase Amethyst but kept getting directed to a font called Asterism and I just want to be sure they are the same before I order anything.

    1. Michelle, they are the same, she changed the name after this post for some reason, but it’s the same beautiful font:)
