LT Sweet Nothings Dingbat Font

LT Sweet Nothings Dingbat FontIntroducing the my new dingbat font design, LT Sweet Nothings, version 1.00 of this dingbat was initially released April 30, 2009. The font is comprised of 51 stylish and unique "sweet nothings," ideal for use in graphic design. Skulls, scrolls (or flourishes), guns, birdies;  basically it's a totally kick-ass dingbat, with all the stuff we like to clutter our designs with.

The dings come from my own artwork, while inspiration for a few "vintage" looking dings, such as the fist with brass knuckles and the good luck ring, coming from a Johnson Smith & Co advertisement in the January 1933 issue of, "Everyday Science and Mechanics."

The ad is a true gem, with many more unusual woodcut drawings of the period. I was so taken by them I was certain others might be as well; hence, I recreated them here in this dingbat font.

Depicted in the character mapped as the latin lowercase letter x are Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire as they appear on a poster for the movie they starred in which was entitled, "Swing Time." The film, also a gem, I am glad to have caught one afternoon on American Movie Classics, a cable network.
