The new distressed typewriter font Ollivette is inspired by a beatnik poet sitting on a beach in Mexico pecking away at his brand new, imported, Italian portable typewriter in 1954. That’s where the basic letterforms for this font hearken from. The grungey patina has been added over the years and is now available for you to download in font format.
If you prefer the basic TrueType or PostScript versions, you'll enjoy a new standard retro typewriter style. Users of the advanced OpenType features will appreciate stylistic alternates for almost every letter, and contextual alternates for a randomizing organic effect. Support for Western & Central Europe? Yeah! We put that in there, too. So go global, and go vintage, here’s a classic new type for you.
