About MPI Norwich Aldine Reversed Font Family
Norwich Aldine Reverse is a font of “streamer type” (type reversed out of a solid) originally designed around 1872. Norwich Aldine is slightly lighter and more open than Aldine. It features medium stroke contrast, heavy serifs, and large rounded bracketing where the stems meet the serifs. Our version is based on wood type of unknown origin. We created dozens of special ligatures to reduce problematic kerning encountered with a monospaced reversed type.

mpressInteractive, LLC is a design and development company with our own well-equipped letterpress studio. We got our start by creating a virtual letterpress for the iPad called LetterMpress which has tens of thousands of users worldwide and has been featured by such publications as USA Today, Forbes, Fast Company, MacUser, and TechCrunch. We acquired a vast collection of vintage wood type from around the world which we carefully digitize to use in our apps, for letterpress printing, and now as OpenType fonts.
mpressFonts™ are created from the collection of wood type used in our LetterMpress® app for iPad and Mac, and from our Living Letter Press studio. We have modified the original wood type specimens to account for digital appearance, missing characters, modern glyphs, and accents. Just as the original wood typefaces, mpressFonts are ideally suited for display and headline usage in print and digital media.
