Hamlet is a serif and display serif font household. This typeface has 3 styles and was published by Canada Type.

Based on a specimen of an unknown and uncredited old face called Kitterland, Hamlet is among those curiosities rarely noticed on the planet of modern typefaces, the kind that instills a variety of historic Blackletter and calligraphy traits in an otherwise Roman alphabet. Such typefaces, what few of them exist, are often categorized by typophiles as standard decorative Roman alphabets. We beg to vary. We believe such hybrids are remarkable adequate to should have a classification of their own. And we think today's aspiring letterers and type designers would take advantage of paying special attention to this sort of hybrid alphabet, not only due to the fact that it has much more hand than maker in it, however also since it is a prime example of how to prosper in blending various lettering methods into one self-contained and distinctly functional alphabet.

As in any effective mixture of lettering techniques, Hamlet wound up with characters that are uniquely its own, such as the cupped A, M, V, W and Y, the very luscious and welcoming curves on the arms of E, F, L and T, both single- and double-story types of the a, and the humblest, friendliest g and y ever. A dozen alternate characters are sprinkled throughout the character set, so have a look at the map for a few enjoyable surprises.

We likewise made the Handtooled and Headstone designs since we thought these friendly kinds were just crying out for such treatments. The Handtooled variation ended up quite lovely, if we may state so ourselves, maybe even much better than the primary typeface. The Headstone variation is available as a free bonus offer to those who purchase the total Hamlet package.

All Hamlet styles come with lining figures as well as old style ones. Hamlet comes in all popular font formats. The OpenType fonts contain push-button switching alternates and figures, which come in helpful in software programs that support this sort of thing.
