HWT SlabPublisher: Hamilton Wood Type Foundry
HWT Slab was released by Hamilton Wood Type Foundry. HWT Piece includes 2 styles and family package choices. p > These two extra strong typefaces are traditional piece serif wood type styles with one information of distinction. Columbian is an extra strong Clarendon wood type that was made by much of the wood type manufacturers in the late 19th century. 'Clarendons' function bracketed or rounded serif joins whereas 'Antique' was a class of typefaces that includes squared off slab serifs. Some type styles have only minor distinctions from others. The Columbian design is basically similar to Wm. Page & & Co.'s 'Antique no. 4', with the distinction being the bracketed serifs.

In looking into material for the digitization of Columbian, we started with a 15 line font style determined as 'Columbian' displayed in the Angelica Press wood type portfolio (printed in 1976). This typeface remains in reality 'Page Antique no. 4'. Comparing Antique # 4 to Columbian specimens from Hamilton and other makers confirms the only real distinction is the serif treatments. Therefore, both typefaces are presented as a set. Each typeface includes a complete Western & & Central European character set.
