This font by Alan Cairns was created in 1995 and was is based on the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh in Glasgow at the turn of the century. You probably recognize this iconic style from the titles of American Horror Story. Beware, this is absolutely a headline font, and looks ghastly below 24 points.

Upper case only is represented, but lower case letters give upper case output. In some cases the lower case letter will be a variant on the upper case one. There are also some ligatures and third versions. If you like this style and would like to purchase the actual ICT Rennie Mackintosh you can find it here.
