Hi

Can anybody help me out with some info regarding welsh typefaces/typographers?

I'm not looking for typefaces with Welsh character support, although I'm assuming that they probably will have it, rather typefaces created in Wales or by Welsh people.

Thank you in advance

The font has a much broader scope but [[http://www.tiro.com/articles.html|Sylfaen]] by John Hudson and Geraldine Wade was named as such because:

The name Sylfaen, which provides the pun in my title, is a Welsh word meaning foundation. Since Geraldine and I were both raised in Wales, it seemed appropriate to pick a Welsh name for our joint typeface: to insist on the continued importance of the heritage of a particular place, even as we set out to make a font for many places.
