Richard Kegler/Terry WudenbachsCountry:
HWT American Chromatic is the inaugural release from the Hamilton Wood Type Foundry- a joint venture between P22 and the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum
. The American Chromatic Set is a multilayered font set that will allow for thousands of possible color and pattern combinations. The original 19th Century Chromatic that this font set is based upon included 2 fonts. The HWT digital version includes 8. The alignment is configured to allow any combination of the 8 fonts to all align when identical text is set and arranged, one on top of the other.
Due to the highly decorative nature of this font set, the character set is limited to upper case only with basic punctuation. Five of the eight fonts in the set can be used individually as variations of the classic Tuscan style of wood type, which is defined by its concave stems and serifs. There are no accented characters also due to the ornate nature of the design and because there were no accents originally intended for this design.
HWT American Chromatic is ideal for a wide array of design uses including election coverage materials and any other use that requires a classic Americana flavor.
This family is available at a discount in the HWT Collection
