The text in the picture above, “I don’t know what there is to say about love…” is my translated English transcription of an introduction in German by Jean Baudrillard (from Prolog: Wieder die Liebe / Prologue: Against Love). The text continues:
Eros creates and furthers relations,
affects, projections and identifications.
Love one another!
Who could’ve ever said seduce one another?
Light Hearted is inspired by the recording mentioned above of Jean Baudrillard with the title Die Macht der Verführung 1 (The Power of Seduction) from 2006. The typeface used in the text is Light Hearted Capital Love. Further inspiration came from the article The shape of the heart: I’m all yours. The heart represents sacred and secular Love: a bloodless sacrifice.2 by British writer Louisa Young printed in EYE magazine (#43) London, 2002.
Light Hearted is a Family of seven Fonts.
Let me introduce you to the family members:
Capital Love – It just contains capital letters. Every letter of the alphabet is decorated with hearts. By pressing a lowercase button, an alternative to the uppercase letter will appear.
Cute Letters – A heart on every capital letter. They are so cute.
Chained Hearts – has hearts on a string with a letter in the middle. All hearts are designed to align automatically to a perfect string. Lowercase letters produce a heart with an outline. Uppercase letters create a filled heart.
Prince Charming – He puts a heart on everything.
You’re convinced that you love them? Go with Prince Charming.
Princess Charming – Princess Charming puts more hearts on every letter.
Convince that you have to be loved – follow Princess Charming.
Heartless – is like the ones before but without decoration (for longer texts) – still very cute.
Free Communication Hearts – a surprise.
