ABOUT







George Nesbitt

American wood type designer of the 19th century. His 1838 specimen book of wood typefaces is famous in typophile circles.

Several of his creations have been digitized: Fat Face No. 20 (by Dan X. Solo, 2005; based on a didone headline from 1838), Penny (by Jordan Davies, 2007; on a didone headline from 1838), Octagon French (a 3d beveled typeface due to George Nesbitt, 1838, revival by Paulo W, Intellecta Design, 2010). His Antique Extended (1838) was revived as a wood type in 1900 by Tubbs & Co.

A more extensive, and free, collection is provided by Dick Pape (2013) is his AWT or American Wood Type collection. These include AWT Nesbitt Gothic (+Bold, +Round), AWT Nesbitt Octagon, AWT Nesbitt Roman (+Condensed, +XCondensed, +Extended, +Ornamented), AWT Nesbitt Venetian.
