Type Gallery – Coronet
Font Designer: Robert Hunter Middleton, 1937
Coronet® was designed by type artist Robert Hunter Middleton and it was released by the Ludlow type foundry in 1937. This calligraphic typeface is one of the early attempts to produce a modern calligraphy. Robert Hunter Middleton used baroque models and added contemporary elements to them. Coronet has clear strokes with little ornamentation in its capitals and has a reduced x-height, as do other typefaces of the time, like Kabel® and Koch® Antiqua. The elegant and lively character of Coronet makes it an excellent choice for personal printed material.
