The Hamilton Wood Type Foundry announces 2 new fonts- HWT Antique Tuscan No. 9 and HWT Borders Oneā€¦and a newly redesigned HWT Foundry site.

HWT Antique Tuscan No. 9 is a very condensed 19th century Tuscan style wood type design with a full character set and ligatures. This design was first shown by Wm H Page Co in 1859 and is the first digital version of this font to include a lowercase and extended European character set.

HWT Borders One features a collection of 80 modular decorative elements from the Hamilton Wood Type Collection. The borders and streamers found in this font are based directly on the designs offered by the Hamilton Manufacturing company at the end of the 19th Century.
