Created by Richard Kegler, HWT Bon Air is a brush script font released by P22 Type Foundry.

Bon Air was among a series of script typefaces cut into wood by the Hamilton Manufacturing Business for the Morgan Indication Maker Co. (makers of the Line-o-Scribe showcard press) in the mid 20th Century. These were a few of the last new designs cut into wood by Hamilton until the museum revival in the early 2000s. Bon Air was created in 1958 and trademarked in 1961.


The wood type produced Morgan was utilized mostly in outlet store to make their own signage. The script designs are reminiscent of sign painters alphabets and stimulate a Mad Guys era marketing aesthetic. The typeface was just cut in four sizes: 12, 18, 36 and 72 line. It was distributed by Morgan for use in their presses, however as type high wood type, it could be used on any press.


The font style was provided with numerous alternate letters and ligatures to simulate the impact of hand lettering. Its dynamic strokes and odd information provide it an exotic flavor appropriate for advertising display screen work. The digital variation consists of all of the initial alternates plus brand-new characters to submit a full European character set.
