Cedar Street was designed by Brian Willson and published by Three Islands Press. Cedar Street includes 1 style. p > There's something pleasing about tweaking to perfection a typeface based upon the specific design of lettering applied to a particular sort of paper by a particular human hand.

One day, in pursuit of this curious sense of fulfillment, I sat down with a permeable pad of lined note paper and printed out the alphabet with a ballpoint pen. I found particularly intriguing the bulbous ends of the strokes where the ink soaked in.

I couldn't help myself: I extracted the rest of the character set, scanned, hand-traced, and-- as with all 3IP font style styles-- controlled every glyph to a compulsive degree. Called it Cedar Street, after a preferred address of mine.

Full release has a single medium weight with a comprehensive character set.
