Three Islands Press

Three Islands Press (a.k.a., “3IP”) is a small type foundry in Salt Lake City, Utah. Specialties include historical replications, fine text type, old map fonts, and painstaking recreations of vintage and modern handwriting.

3IP is the d.b.a. of Brian Willson, who accidentally stumbled into type design in the 1990s after a career in print and broadcast journalism. He has absolutely no formal training—just a peculiar knack for making fonts that look like real handwriting and antique text materials.

3IP also represents the work of Swedish type designer Lars Bergquist, whose previous career was publishing of encyclopedias and reference literature in the days of lead type. Bergquist’s elegant, varied, multipurpose typefaces are as polished as any out there.
