Tuesday Type Treat: 2 New Fonts From Hamilton Wood Type Foundry
P22 and Hamilton Wood Type Foundry have just released two new fonts on the recently redesigned HWT Foundry site. A portion of the proceeds from all sales of HWT digital fonts goes to support the operation of the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum in Two Rivers, WI.
HWT Antique Tuscan No. 9 is a very condensed 19th century Tuscan style wood type design with a full character set and ligatures. This design was first shown by Wm H Page Co in 1859 and is the first digital version of this font to include a lowercase and extended European character set.
HWT Borders One features a collection of 80 modular decorative elements from the Hamilton Wood Type Collection. The borders and streamers found in this font are based directly on the designs offered by the Hamilton Manufacturing company at the end of the 19th Century.
