Novella Clone


Okay, you can stop the rioting; I’m back. The past few weeks were a little nuts and involved moving, buying way too much furniture and arguing with some rip-off artists at what I’m pretty sure is a money-laundering operation disguised as a sofa store. Anyway, you guys don’t care about that, so here’s a font:

When a co-worker asked me to find a Novella clone for a friend’s wedding invitations, I figured I’d just do a half-assed search and tell him I didn’t have any luck. Fortunately for the bride & groom, Novella was used on a Smashing Pumpkins album cover, so the billions and billions of Pumpkins fans (or as I’ve just decided to call them, Corganisms) were clamoring for a free clone. So I managed to find a pretty good one called Santa’s Sleigh (scroll to the bottom).

If it were one of my friends’ invitations, I would have just bought them the real Novella as an early wedding present.

My feeling is that this entry is not really in keeping with the original mandate of Fontleech — namely to introduce readers to free ORIGINAL fonts. Pointing us to knock offs that take money from talented designers seems hardly fair. Dan Reynolds makes a good point. If you like Novella, you should go buy it.

i’m not sure who issued that “original mandate” but could you have them send me an email? obviously we have a lot to discuss.

Im not complaining like my brothers here, but i guess you see now what happens when you leave us alone for some time, hehe.

I don’t think the knock-off fonts they do have are so great

Just popping in to sympathize with the sofa shopping. It’s arguably worse than shopping for a car.
