Wessex font family

About Wessex font family

Initially conceived by Matthew Butterick as a Bulmer revival, Wessex took on characteristics of Baskerville & Caledonia as design proceeded. In 1938, W.A. Dwiggins had taken the hard necessities of the non-kerning line-caster italic duplexed onto the same widths as roman, and turned them into design virtues. Inspired by the surprising beauty of his wide-bodied Caledonia italic, Butterick used it as a model for Wessex.
