A nice calligraphic typeface, originally dated to 1991 and circulating as "Carolingia" and with the filename dorcla.ttf and the notice "A William Boyd Release. Free of Charge."
Now the fonts going with that name do not seem to be Boyd's original creations but adaptations of existing faces. Since Carolingia hat a few shortcomings (most obviously the too high x-height of the lowercase t) I started tweaking it for my own purposes and later published it on my web site fontgrube.de. Mistakes were corrected and more extended characters added.
As it is now time to update the contact information I take the opportunity to do some more tweaks. Have fun with this free font but mind the fontgrube distribution rules.
