ABOUT







Scotch

The typophiles suggest Scotch typefaces. Comments pulled from the discussions.

  • Miller is absolutely lovely to me, great numerals, great italic, great punctuation, but had the ill fortune of being born too soon (pre-Opentype era), so it has certain lacks.
  • Chronicle is executed amazingly, but comes off--to my eyes, anyway--almost over-refined (and bland in comparison with Miller).
  • Ingeborg is intriguing, but I haven't seen it in print anywhere (and it's the most expensive). But John Hudson was quick to correct: Ingeborg is not a Scotch Roman. It is, however, an absolutely splendid typeface, and I'd buy it anyway if I were you.
  • Scotch Modern is a close revival of a 12 pt Scotch Modern of c.1870, extended to include a wide array of present-day OpenType features. [Comment by its creator, Nick Shinn]
