About Shinano Font Family

Shinano is an old province of Japan. Kobayashi Issa (1763 - 1828), a famous Japanese Haiku poet and Buddhist priest, was born here. Together with Bashō he is my favourite Haiku poet. Shinano font was hand made using a Japanese brush pen. At first glance it may look like a messy script, but underneath its rough appearance beats a poetic heart. Comes with some alternates and ligatures and a whole lot of diacritics.

About Hanoded

Hanoded is a type foundry based in The Netherlands and run by David Kerkhoff. After finishing his journalism studies, David traveled extensively and ended up in Israel where he stayed for some years. David had a lot of jobs – zookeeper, goldsmith, artist and cook (to name a few), but settled on working as a tour guide and photographer. David specializes in hand printed typefaces and uses brushes, pens, ink and paint to create his – sometimes scary looking – fonts. He lives in a wee hamlet near the Rhine river, with his wife, three kids, a handful of extremely spoiled chickens and two guinea pigs called Cookie and Chippie.The Premium foundry page can be viewed Here.
