About New Old English Font Family


New Old English was prompted by two Victorian coins, the mid nineteenth century gothic crown and gothic florin, which featured a gothic script lowercase with quite modern looking, short ascenders and descenders enabling it to fit snugly around the queen’s head or heraldic motif. With thicker hairline strokes than normal Old English, a less sharp, warmer feel than lettering scripted with a pen, and circular instead of rhombic punctuation, this font is an attempt to capture the round-cornered softness of the die-struck lowercase blackletter. To increase harmony and homogeneity between the cases, the uppercase is narrower and simpler than is customary, without the excessive width or antiquated flamboyance of the traditional blackletter. It might even allow text set in capitals to look acceptable.

About K-Type

K-Type is a small, independent type foundry based in Manchester England, offering a unique range of high quality ‘free for personal use’ fonts, and pay fonts which are modestly and simply priced for designers, small businesses and large organizations. K-Type is the foundry of designer and mail artist, Keith Bates. Many K-Type fonts show the influence of inspirational artists and designers, and are often imbued with a playful wit and the genuine affection of honorable homage. Other K-Type fonts explore the quirky eclecticism of the British typographical landscape and the considerable allure of American letterforms. The resulting faces are reliable and eminently usable. Most feature a good complement of accented characters, and increasingly offer a selection of weights and italics.
