ABOUT







Dard Hunter

William Joseph Dard Hunter was born in 1883 in Steubenville, OH, and died in 1966 in Chillicothe, OH. He was one of the most influential graphic designers to come out of the American Arts and Crafts movement around 1900-1910. The typeface P22 Arts and Crafts (1995) by James Grieshaber at P22 comes complete with Arts and Crafts Ornaments and is based on Dard Hunter's designs. Bala Cynwyd NF (2008) and Nickley NF (1997, an arts and crafts font) by Nick Curtis are other digital revivals of his lettering. Related arts and crafts fonts include Syracuse (1999, Woodside Graphics) and Nouveau Riche JNL (Jeff Levine).

The Mountain House Press Types were designed and cut by Dard Hunter between 1912 and 1915, and by Dard Hunter Jr. (b. 1917) in 1937-39, for the private use of their Mountain House Press.

A Specimen of Type (Dard Hunter Jr., 1940, Paper Museum Press, Cambridge, MA) is a small booklet shows a roman type started in 1936 by Dard Hunter Jr. under the guidance of Professor Otto F. Ege. Apologies for the poor quality of the digital pics, which were taken under challenging conditions in the dungeon of a gothic library.

A third generation has emerged as well, as Dard Hunter III is an active printer and book designer in modern times.
