Woodtype

Hi,

we would like to introduce you Show, a multi-layered chromatic font family based on an old Victorian style wood type. http://show.juanjez.com/

Show designers Inés Atienza and Juanjo López are members of the Familia Plómez association, a small printshop based in Madrid that devote their efforts to promote everything about letterpress printing, calligraphy, and lettering. One of our favorite typefaces from our collection of wood types has been the basis for creating a new digital typeface.

P22 type foundry and the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum are proud to announce a partnership that brings 19th Century ingenuity into relevance with the latest online technologies. This joint venture, known as the "Hamilton Wood Type Foundry" (HWT), will see a large collection of wood type designs converted into digital fonts that can be used with the latest Webfont CSS and Opentype programming abilities. P22 is working with the Hamilton Museum and other collections of scarce printed specimens as well as actual wood type to render these classic designs into fully functioning computer fonts.

The subject line is theirs, not mine. (Clever, though.) For as little as $1.00 you can help the WNY Book Arts Center purchase a rare treasure trove of Woodtype via Kickstart. http://kck.st/hbVYiJ

I'm not sure if someone listed this already, but a search of the site comes up empty. Tiffany Wardle de Sousa posted it on her facebook page and I've reposted it around. They're up a few hundred from the other day, so something's working.
