New Yorker Type ProDesigner: Gert Wiescher
Designed by Gert Wiescher, New Yorker Type Pro is an art deco and display serif font household. This typeface has seven styles and was published by Wiescher-Design.

New-Yorker-Type was one of the first typefaces I tried my hand at in 1985. I implied it as a revival of the typeface used by the New Yorker magazine. I did not scan it. I just looked at the type and redrew it totally by hand. Only much later on did I come to know, that there is a bundle of comparable typefaces of that period. Rea Irvin's design for New-Yorker publication was just among them, maybe the very best.
In the next step I fixed some of the mistakes that I made more than thirty years earlier.
Now on the eve of 2020 I provided the font style a total overhaul and added a set of Swash Initials, Cyrillic and Greek glyphs and lots of ligatures. The font now has 1075 glyphs and is all set for many latin writing systems. On top of that I made two variations, a Timeless one with rounded corners and a pointed Pro variation for a more up-to-date appearance. Take your pick.
Yours all the best, honoring Rea Irvin an excellent type- and magazine-designer, Gert Wiescher
