About Altra Two Font Family

AltraTwo is a complete redraw of a family based on a tracing of a clip art font from an old printed book. The AltraTwo family adds italic, black, and black italic. I liked the gentle calligraphic look. Consider it a sans serif with style. This is a typical NuevoDeco OpenType pro font with caps, lowercase, small caps, lining, oldstyle, and small cap figures, numerators, denominators, fractions, swashes, and so on. There aren't many unusal ligatures for this one, though. It does have the Latin 2 character set or what Adobe calls CE, Central European characters. Altra has been my preferred header face for sevral years. it also works very well for body copy. I usually use it for my contrasting tip and quote paragraphs with Bergsland Pro as my normal body copy.

About Hackberry Font Foundry

The Hackberry Font Foundry was founded in the 1998 to sell the fonts David Bergsland designed to be used in his digital publishing training books. The goal of David’s fonts is to add a hand-drawn edge to them. In this age of increasing technological “slickness” he purposely loosens the structure and adds “air” to the glyphs with breaks. All fonts are designed as OpenType Pro fonts with special production features. Almost all of the fonts have oldstyle numbers as well as small cap figures, plus small caps, discretionary ligatures & special dingbats. They really shine in book production. The production families have contrasting serif and sans serif families both using the same vertical font metrics—for run-in heads and the like. At present he mainly writes and designs books.
