About this font family
NewYorkerType was one of the first typefaces I tried my hand at in 1985.
I meant it as a revival of the typeface used by the New Yorker magazine. I did not scan it in, I just looked at the type and redrew it completely by hand. So it is not just a copy, but rather a redesign. Only much later did I come to know, that there is a bundle of similar typefaces of that period. Rea Irvin’s design for New-Yorker magazine was just one of them, but the best.
Yours, sincerely honoring Rea Irvin a great type- and magazine-designer Gert Wiescher
