Letterpress font family


Designed by Chris Costello
This font, based on the popular and timeless Calson design, was carefully digitized from the pages of an antique book that I own which was printed in England during the late 18th century. I was particularly intrigued by a few unique treatments of such characters as the lower case italic “p”, the question marks and various swash caps, that I had never seen before. During the conversion process, I made sure to preserve the worn look of faded ink on old paper by maintaining a subtle level of decay and opacity with each character. Used as a text font, Letterpress Text successfully reproduces the appearance of old letterpress lithography.
