About Bonsai Font Family
Years ago, I developed an interest in the Japanese art of dwarfed potted trees, bonsai. I bought some books on the subject from Brooklyn Botanic Garden. In one -- Handbook on Bonsai: Special Techniques (seventh printing, February 1976) -- the type was bad. Old worn lead type, I suspect, spread wide in the tops of characters and disappearing on the bottoms. Two decades later, I came across my Brooklyn Botanic Garden collection and was struck again by this interesting type. Inspired, I made a typeface. Didn't take me long to decide on a name for it, either: a name with a double-meaning, based both on its look and its inspiration. Bonsai, the typeface, has two styles, a roman and a true italic.

About Three Islands Press
Three Islands Press (a.k.a., “3IP”) is a small type foundry in Rockport, Maine. Specialties include historical replications, fine text type, old map fonts, and painstaking recreations of vintage and modern handwriting. 3IP is the d.b.a. of Brian Willson, who accidentally stumbled into type design in the 1990s after a career in print and broadcast journalism. He has absolutely no formal training—just a peculiar knack for making fonts that look like real handwriting and antique text materials. 3IP also represents the work of Swedish type designer Lars Bergquist, whose previous career was publishing of encyclopedias and reference literature in the days of lead type. Bergquist’s elegant, varied, multipurpose typefaces are as polished as any out there.
