Hamilton Wood Type (HWT) [Richard Kegler]

Hamilton Wood Type (HWT), established in 2012, is a joint venture between P22 type foundry and the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum. The designs in this collection are based on printed specimens and actual wood type from the historic Hamilton Museum in Two Rivers, WI. HWT is based at P22 headquarters in Buffalo, NY. Typefaces are contributed by its founder, Richard Kegler, but also by Miranda Roth and Terry Wüdenbachs.

In 2012, they published HWT American Chromatic (Richard Kegler, Terry Wüdenbachs), a multilayered Western or circus font based on 19th Century Chromatic.

HWT Antique Tuscan No. 9 (2012) is a very condensed 19th century Tuscan style wood type design with a full character set and ligatures. This font was first shown by Wm H Page Co in 1859. It is the first digital version of this font to include a lowercase and extended European character set.

HWT Borders One (2012) contains 80 modular decorative elements that are based on the designs offered by the Hamilton Manufacturing company at the end of the 19th Century.

In 2013, Richard Kegler released the refreshing retro typeface HWT Bon Air, which is one of a series of script typefaces cut into wood by the Hamilton Manufacturing Company for the Morgan Sign Machine Co. (makers of the Line-o-Scribe showcard press) ca. 1950). He also digitized HWT Star Ornaments and HWT Republic Gothic (with Miranda Roth).

In 2013, James Todd designed the wood type revival family HWT Unit Gothic for Hamilton Wood Type Foundry. The Unit Gothic series was released by Hamilton Manufacturing Co. in 1907, and comprises a flexible range of widths from compressed to very wide.

Still in 2013, William Page's Antique No. 4 is revived as HWT Slab (Antique, Columbian), one with unbracketed square serifs, and one with bracketed serifs as in Clarendons.
