King Tut was created by Kevin King and released by Canada Type. King Tut includes 7 designs and household package alternatives. p > King Tut is a repair and expansion of the original Egyptian Expanded, a single strong face cut in 1850 by Miller & & Richard, the popular Edinburgh founders. This aesthetic, though initially provided to assist drive basic print advertising of those days, is maybe the longest enduring genre of typeface. This aesthetic grown in the later part of the 19th century, helped by the surge of comparable faces from England (such as Figgins' Antique 6 and Expanded Antique), and became the specifying index of the old American wild west that continues to this very day.

King Tut dishes out its impact through a balance in between the broad, compact letterforms and sophisticated curvature that manages to come through even in confined locations. The household's weight range enables more alternatives in counterspace usage in addition to accuracy in the quantity of curve meaning and contrast required by the typographer. The lighter weights completely oppose that 19th century boldness and expose the alphabet's skeleton in a pursue simpleness that fits contemporary applications.

With generous language support to boot, King Tut's varied offerings make it an essential addition to today's designer collection.
