Many typefaces designed with a pen on paper (especially those from the 20th century) were licensed by different foundries, and were later independently digitized by them. Some special characters such as @ or the euro sign, were independently added later. Those “alternate cuts” are different digital versions of basically the same typeface design. They often vary in character set, letter proportions and kerning. Some are published under different names.
A stunning collection of calligraphic elements, illustrations and unique typographic devices that support all the popular typefaces in the Fontek library. An essential design resource for all sorts of graphic work including announcements, brochures, certificates, greeting cards, flyers and stationery. Created by the collective talents of British designers Michael Gills and Martin Wait.
