About this font family
Jonah is a digitization of the popular early 1970s Urban font from Franklin Photolettering. Though there seemingly is no record left of who the original designer of the font was, it does bear the unmistakable touch of the late 1960s works of a few popular American designers of that era, like Wes Wilson and Victor Moscoco.
A few other takes on this style exist, but none of them keeps the authenticity of the original design. Jonah does. Jonah gets in line with Canada Type’s Jimi, Janice, Jackpot and Jojo, the other popular psychedelic groove fonts from Canada Type, to form the most comprehensible and varied collection of this special style of art nouveau lettering that now defines the late 1960s and early 1970s. Jonah comes in two style: Black and White. More…
The Black font is the authentic digitization that is psychedelia embodied, and the White font is the snuggly outline version where letters seem to be growing from each other to form friendly twistable walls that speak of art as much as they do of love. Both fonts come with over 20 built-in alternates for maximum flexibility.
