ABOUT







M. Elizabeth Colwell

Chicago lettering artist who created Colwell Handletter&Italic in 1917 for ATF, and this roman (possibly in 1923), also for ATF. She was noted for her display work and hand-lettered pages. Some say that Colwell Handletter was designed by someone else based on her work.

Digital versions: HPLHS Prop Fonts (Andrew Leman) has HPLHS Colwell and HPLHS Colwell italic. Lazy Dog Foundry (or: Franklin Type Founders) has a font called Colwell. Suzanne Fleischauer and Apostrophe created Colwell and Hadley (2000), based on 1916 hand lettering by Ned Hadley. So, maybe this suggests that Ned Hadley was the real designer of these fonts. Finally, Nick Curtis created McKenna Handletter NF Normal, McKenna Handletter NF Bold, McKenna Handletter NF Normal Italic and McKenna Handletter NF Bold Italic in 2002.
