Founded in 2000 by photographer and type designer Michael Hagemann, FontMesa has specialized in creating type styles of the old west and fonts for sign lettering. Some fonts are classic Italian (Tuscan) and French revivals with new lowercase letters added while others were created from a small sample of letters found on old documents never intended to be a complete font. FontMesa continues to research and find old, long lost type from the 1800s, then revive them into the digital world where they will never be forgotten. With a FontMesa font you can be assured of a quality product; all fonts are drawn and kerned by hand and never created by automatic scanning methods.
