About Filmotype Hamlet Font Family


Filmotype Hamlet was released by Filmotype in 1955 as a condensed version of it's first connecting script face Filmotype Harmony originally designed by Ray Baker. Filmotype regularly created derivative styles and weights of its typefaces as its customers requested new styles for their typesetting work. Filmotype Hamlet was developed from the original font filmstrips and includes a full international character compliment, automatic fractionals, ordinals, and a large set of automatic alternate contextual characters and ligatures to allow flawless typesetting in dynamic OpenType format.

About Filmotype

Originally sold in the 1950s, the Filmotype introduced by its founders Allan and Beatrice Friedman was a simple manually operated photo typesetting machine (the iMac of the 1950s) and it used 2-inch filmstrips with over 500 amazing display alphabets so the user could set headlines on photo paper or film. Filmotype eventually went on to become Alphatype until the Mac came along in 1984 and POOF! No more photo typesetting! In 2006, the Font Diner acquired this amazing photo film alphabet collection and continues to digitize and releasing these wonderful gems of 1950s lettering as digital fonts! To learn more about the history of this amazing company, a companion book was written and released in 2009. It's called Filmotype: By the Letter - An Illustrated History and at over 130 pages, this book will be sure to become a cherished keepsake in your design bookshelf and can be purchased at (http://www.fontbros.com/merchandise.php).
