About Lion of Antwerp Font Family

Gerard Leeu met his untimely end in a work related altercation. He was a notable printer in both the cities of Gouda and Antwerp dying in 1492. This font face is based on the “Die gesten of gheschienisse van romen” typeface circa 1481. It is both very legible and yet oddly archaic in flavor. This realization contains roughly 600 defined glyphs for use in our era.

About Proportional Lime

Proportional Lime Type Foundry is a second floor operation that is overrun with a bird, cats, and unpleasant levels of heat, some of which is generated by the obsolescent machinery, and the rest enforced by the laws of thermodynamics. The bird owns the cats. And the cats own the humans. However, even considering the aggressive nature of the bird's endless commentary, and the cat's intermittent proofreading sessions, work is still routinely accomplished, and the goal of creating historically influenced typefaces achieved. We at PLTF desire to create typefaces that accurately recreate the feel of the old printing technologies for use in the modern world and also to explore novel designs.
