New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
This is a typeface that I have been fiddling around for a long time. It has its roots in 19th century american printed ephemera, but it's not based on any particular font - it's more of a "remix" of different styles with some added twists.
I have tried to make the outlines rough to get the same warm soft feeling that old ephemera has.
I also have experimented in spacing the font more tightly than would have been possible with real wood type to get a more modern feel.
I haven't yet really focused on spacing/kerning and even the basic character set isn't even completed yet.
Any comments appreciated.
