Stack was created by James Todd and released by James Todd. Stack consists of 5 styles and household bundle options. p > Stack brings the spirit of industrial chimney lettering from the early twentieth century to the digital age.

The typeface is designed to work both horizontally and vertically. In addition, the typefaces can collaborate in myriad chromatic expressions-providing limitless style possibilities.

The household is real to the spirit of masonry lettering without being a direct lift of any particular lettering style from the commercial age. Like a few of its masonry predecessors Stack is constructed as a typeface of 15 courses (horizontal rows) of 'bricks.'

Based on a number of years of research study a collection of 150+ pictures and roughly 2 dozen archival engineering drawings were accumulated. The worth of the historical referrals is a type household that is a legitimate reflection of masonry lettering designs of the period.

In upgrading Stack for the digital age, the proportions of the base-unit 'bricks' and the density of 'mortar' joints have actually been optically adapted to operate in both screen-based and print media.

Stack would not have been possible without the research study and style input from Craig Welsh and Jenna Flickinger of GoWelsh.
