Sevillana is named after a folk music style widespread in Seville (Andalusia) in Spain. The typeface is inspired by the lettering of commemorative plates which can be seen on the houses’ walls in Andalusia. Those ceramic plates are handmade and each one is unique. Individual handwriting may vary but the style is always recognizable. Sevillana is a generalized character based on that diversity. Sevillana is a headline typeface that can be used in middle and large sizes, it can be used for restaurant menus, concert posters, different kinds of signage etc.
