Alta Mesa was designed by Michael Hagemann and published by FontMesa. Alta Mesa contains 14 styles and family package options.  

Alta Mesa is a revival of an old type design from the 1800's that was sold by most of the type foundries in the US and Europe of that time period so it is difficult to know the foundry of origin.

New with this version are the fill fonts and plain styles, the fill fonts may be used as stand alone fonts, however the letter spacing is much wider, the plain versions are recommended if you desire a solid black weight.

The regular Fill font is in registration with the Regular and Open versions while the Fill L font is in registration with the L and Open L versions.

This was a very charming font in its time which was heavily used on old billheads and letterheads.

We're pleased to bring this type design, which hasn't been used for over 100 years, into the digital world today.
