HWT Roman Extended FatfaceDesigner: Jim Lyles
Publisher: Hamilton Wood Type Foundry
HWT Roman Extended Fatface was designed by Jim Lyles and published by Hamilton Wood Type Foundry. HWT Roman Extended Fatface contains 1 style. p > The style of the first 'Fat Face' is credited to Robert Thorne simply after 1800 in England. It is thought about to be the very first type style designed specifically for display or jobbing, rather than for book work. The first instance of Fat Face in wood type is discovered in the very first wood type specimen book ever produced: Darius Wells, Letter Cutter 1828. This design was produced by all early wood type manufacturers.

The design is originated from the high contrast, thick and thin Modern design of Bodoni and Didot established only decades formerly. The extended variation makes the face much more of a display screen type and not suitable for text. This type of screen type was utilized to take on the brand-new Lithographic procedure which permitted the advancement of the poster as an artform unto itself.

This brand-new digitization by Jim Lyles most closely follows the Wm Page cut. The crisp details hold up at the biggest point sizes you can picture. This typeface includes a complete CE character set.
