His titling typeface Royal Charter won an award at Tipos Latinos 2018. This is a digital revival by Cristobal Henestrosa based on an experimental typeface named Charter, designed yet never fully finished by William Addison Dwiggins. It is an upright italic, unconnected script typeface, whose main features are a pronounced contrast, condensed forms and exaggerated ascenders. While Dwiggins worked on this project from 1937 to 1955, he only completed the lowercase and a few other characters. However, it was used to set a specimen in 1942 and a short novel in 1946. The sources that Cristobal used for Royal Charter (and later, Mon Nicolette) were the original sketches by WAD as well as printing trails kept at the Boston Public Library, and a copy of the 1946 edition of The Song-Story of Aucassin and Nicolette. This gorgeous typeface can be used successfully in headlines, subheads and short passages of text from 12 points onwards. It was published in 2020 as Mon Nicolette at Sudtipos, where the help of Oscar Yanez was acknowledged.

In July 2017, Typoasis / Moorstation shut down. Run by Petra Heidorn out of Hamburg, Germany, it hosted her own fonts, as well as those of the popular and talented type designer and artist Manfred Klein (Frankfurt, Germany). Manfred, who was an active type designer from the late 1990s until about 2007, created over 3600 fonts in that period. Those fonts are now hosted at my site, thanks to Petra Heidorn. Manfred's oeuvre is too large to consume and analyze in one sitting or even one month.

At ATypI 2004 in Prague, Richard spoke about Vojtech Preissig. Speaker at ATypI 2010 in Dublin, where he presented Making Faces: Metal Type in the 21st Century about which he writes: This film has the dual aim of documenting the almost-lost skill of creating metal fonts and of capturing the personality and work process of the late Canadian graphic artist Jim Rimmer (1931-2010). P22 type foundry commissioned Mr. Rimmer to create a new type design (Stern) that became the first-ever simultaneous release of a digital font and hand-set metal font in 2008.

Typefaces from 2021: P22 Glaser Houdini (a layerable family, after Glaser's Houdini from 1964), P22 Glaser Babyteeth. Kegler writes: In 2019, P22 Type Foundry met with Milton Glaser (1929-2020) to initiate the official digital series of typefaces designed by Glaser in the 1960s and 70s. P22 Glaser Babyteeth is the first family released in the series. Milton Glaser's inspiration for his Babyteeth typeface came from a hand painted advertisement for a tailor he saw in Mexico City. He was inspired by that E drawn as only someone unfimilar with the alphabet could have concieved. So he set about inventing a completelly ledgible alphabet consistant with this model. P22 Glaser Babyteeth was based on original drawings and phototype proofs from the Milton Glaser Studios archives. Over the years there have been many typefaces that borrowed heavily from the Glaser designs, but these are the only official Babyteeth fonts approved by Milton Glaser Studio and the Estate of Milton Glaser. The solid and open versions are designed to overlap for two-color font effects and can even be mixed and matched for multi layer chromatic treatments. In 2021, he published the 3d art deco shadow font P22 Glaser Kitchen which is based on Big Kitchen (1976).
Per Baasch Jørgensen
Dutch designer, b. 1885, Zaandijk, d. 1977, Wassenaar. Author of Cable Book (1925) and creator of many classic advertisements for the Netherlands Post Office (PTT). His work was influenced by Hungarian De Stijl artist Vilmos Huszar and Dutch architect Jan Wils, whom he met when he moved in 1913 to Voorbug. Wils had worked for Berlage. In 1913-1914, he studied at TU Delft and started his career with Berlage in Voorburg. From 1919 until 1922 he worked for Wils. In 1959, he received the Quellinus Prize in typography. The David Roellprijs followed in 1964. In 2000, Zwart was posthumously awarded the "Designer of the Century" award by the Association of Dutch Designers. From 1919 until 1933 he taught at the Rotterdamse Academie van Beeldende Kunsten en Technische Wetenschappen.
Quoting Design Observer: Piet Zwart's work was multi-disciplinary and spanned the gamut of industrial design, typography, photography, and most notably graphic design. As an industrial designer, Zwart is best known for his design of the Bruynzeel modular kitchen in 1937, which is still available today. As a graphic designer, the work he produced for Nederlandse Kabelfabriek Delft (Dutch Cable Factory in Delft) and Dutch Postal Telegraph and Telephone Company (PTT) is arguably among the best known Dutch graphic design of the 20th century. His graphic design work clearly shows the influence of Constructivism and, though he was not a part of the De Stijl, his work reflects elements of this movement. Recurring themes are the use of repetitious patterns, lines, circles, primary colors, photomontage and explorations of experimental typography.
Type revivals of Piet Zwart's typefaces include

Ex-student at the Ecole Estienne in Paris (b. Estonia) whose diploma work consisted of the creation of typeface in the style of a first century typeface found in an archeological site near Millau in France. Graphic and type designer in the 15th arr. in Paris. Her early typefaces:
Designer of the Fournier era family Rameau (2011, Linotype). Linotype writes: Sarah Lahzarevic is a graphic designer and typographer. She has worked for ten years with the photographer Max Yves Brandily. She is now working as a freelance graphic and type designer for clients such as the French Post Office (La Poste), Millau City Council and the International Francophone Organisation. She teaches graphics and typography at the Ecole Professionnelle Supérieure d'Arts Graphiques et d'Architecture de la Ville de Paris (Graduate Training School in Graphic Arts and Architecture in Paris). She is also developing her own work in copper-plate engraving. She derived the italics of Rameau from the manuscript of the opera Les fêtes de l'hymen et de l'amour, the music for which was composed by Jean-Philippe Rameau in 1747. Linotype: In the 18th century, musical compositions were published in the form of impressions from copper plates that had been hand-engraved in contrast with books and other texts, which were printed from moveable lead type. The italic letters of Rameau include many ligatures and are thus typical of the engraving style of the period.

Rochester Institute of Technology's School of Printing graduate who lived in California and in Holland, MI, and now resides in Louisville, Colorado. He was a disciple of Chuck Bigelow and Kris Holmes. MyFonts page on him. In 1990, he started work at Monotype in Palo Alto to create the Windows truetype core fonts Arial, Times New Roman and Courier New. He stayed with Monotype and then Agfa/Monotype until 2003 (when he was probably fired, but that is only an unreliable guess), directing type development from the design office in Palo Alto, CA. Bio at Agfa/Monotype. He has directed branding projects such as Agilent Technology's corporate sans serif and Microsoft's corporate font family 'Segoe'. At the same time, he was involved in producing bitmaps and outline fonts for cell phones and TV set top environments. He has worked extensively designing Greek, Cyrllic, Thai, Hebrew and Arabic alphabets to satisfy the requirements of customers such as IBM, Microsoft, Nokia, Sun and Sybase. In 2004, he co-founded Ascender Corporation in Northbrook, IL, where he remained Type Design Director until Ascender was bought by Monotype, where he now heads the type design team (12 people in all, as of 2013).
By stone age fonts (this page), we mean fonts that could have been carved in stone by primitive men--these are necessarily angular typefaces with few curves. A prime example is Adobe's Lithos, designed by Carol Twombly. There is a way of looking at these typefaces as faux Greek (or: simulating Greek), as ancient Greek inscriptions have that same angular construction. [Google] [More] ⦿

Terrestrial Design is Carl Crossgrove's web site. Crossgrove graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in Printing /Typography, and has shown a life-long interest in calligraphy and lettering. Now based in San Francisco, he has worked at Adobe, where he designed the Multiple Master hand-printed (semi-Celtic or stone-carved) families Reliq (1998), Reliq Std Active and Reliq Std ExtraActive in 2002, and where, with the help of Kim Buker Chansler and Carol Twombly, he co-designed the Western fonts (Adobe's Wood Series) Origami (hookish, in the expressionist style of Menghart and Preissig), Pepperwood (1994), Ponderosa (1990), Rosewood (1994) and Zebrawood (1994). He was also active at ITC (ITC Minska, 1996) and Agfa Monotype (Origami, a Menhart or Preissig style family; and Mundo Sans, 2002: a 14-weight humanist family, which includes a fantastic hairline sans).
Other fonts by Crossgrove include Othello (2002, with Steve Matteson), Wakerobin (based on hand-painted billboards, posters and signage lettering of the mid-19th century), Scripsit (which was named Judges' Choice in Serif Magazine's 1996 type design competition), Tarantella Script, Ranunculus, Penmark, Curlz MT (1995, Monotype; with Steve Matteson).
Beorcana (2006) is a 28-part serifless roman in the style of Optima or typefaces like Albertus, Stellar, Tiepolo, Barbedor, Lydian and Amira. In the making since 1992, this flared calligraphic book typeface was released by Monotype in 2006. Stephen Coles states: Beorcana is Crossgrove's best and most complete design yet. I can declare from personal experience that it is beautifully drawn and sets very well, small or large, thanks to three optical size masters. It will be a hit with fans of calligraphic sans serifs like Optima. It won an award at TDC2 2007 and was one of the best types of 2007. Florian Hardwig writes: The typeface has no serifs, yet its the opposite of a grotesque. It exhibits the rhythmic contrast and the humanist proportions of a renaissance roman. Its letters please with vividly dancing forms in every detail. However, this obvious calligraphic derivation never seems inappropriately fancy even the spruce swash italics are down-to-earth in a convenient way. The Thin isn't anemic and the Ultra isn't heavy-handed. Crossgrove really knows his stuff. Beorcana Pro (2006-2013) comes in Regular, Display and Micro styles.
With Rod McDonald, he created Egyptian Slate (2009, Monotype).
In 2014, Crossgrove published the Burlingame typeface family at Monotype. He calls this sans collection sturdy, muscular and decisive.

In 2017, he published the comic book typeface family Cavolini at Monotype. Still in 2017, Karl Leuthold, Juan Villanueva and Carl Crossgrove co-designed the breezy script typeface Sagrantino (Monotype) in Regular, Highlight and Shadow substyles.
In 2018, Monotype's Carl Crossgrove, Charles Nix, Juan Villanueva and Lynne Yun co-designed Walbaum, a reimagined superfamily with 69 total fonts, in five optical sizes. Monotype writes: Walbaum was meticulously crafted by Monotype's Carl Crossgrove, Charles Nix, and Juan Villanueva to bring Justus Erich Walbaum's high contrast didone style masterpiece to the 21st century. Walbaum has over 600 glyphs with OpenType typographic features like small capitals, old style and lining figures, proportional and tabular figures, fractions and ligatures. Also included in the family are three decorative and ornament fonts.
At the end of 2018, he published the rough-edged calligraphic typeface Amarone at Monotype.

Wojciech Kalinowski was born in Wroclaw, Poland in 1969. Since 1990, he has designed and carved inscriptions and reliefs in stone, commemorative plaques, and gravestones. He also deals with computer graphics, digital typeface and logo design, and wallpapers. His typefaces are free and are available from the Open Font Library (or OFL).
He created New Shape (2012, organic sans), Medieval Sharp (2011, blackletter), which originated 15 years earlier from a stone inscription alphabet. Consola Mono (2011, OFL) is a monoline monospaced sans for Latin, Greek and Cyrillic. Classica (2011) is a classical roman family. SquareAntiqua (2011, OFL) is a wavy informal face. Cursive Sans and Cursive Serif (ca. 1997, OFL) and Modern Antiqua (1997, OFL) are also based on stone inscriptions. Klaudia and Berenika (2011) is a Celtic style family. Roundstyle (2011) is a sans display family. Modern Antiqua (2011) has a strange name for a font that is neither modern (i.e., didone) nor Antiqua---it is an organic, or liquid, typeface with the gothic flavor of Jonathan Barnbrook's types.
Kalinowski started the NovaCut typeface ca. 1986. Around that time, he developed Gothica, which served as a model for Nova Cut. Gothica was released in 2020.
The uncial typeface family Celtica was released in 2020 and can be downloaded at Open Font Library.
He created the free monospaced "programming" fonts NovaCut, NovaFlat, NovaOval, NovaRound, NovaSlim, NovaSquare, and NovaMono (2011, OFL): NovaMono is the monospace font especially created for programming, text editors and for terminal-use. NovaMono contains a large number of symbols, operators and other miscellaneous signs. NovaMono is a missing part of NovaFont Family. Nova Font is the family of six fonts. There are: NovaCut, NovaFlat, NovaOval, NovaRound, NovaSlim and NovaSquare. Now, the seventh part of the family - NovaMono. The following Unicode ranges are supported:
In 2020, he published Simply Sans.
