Wolverhampton Dispatched

We’ve just dispatched Wolverhampton to our resellers so it should start to be available in the next week or so.  In the meantime we thought we’d give you some more formal information about it and show you some examples of the three families in combination together.

Wolverhampton is a new Neo-Victorian face from Greater Albion Typefounders.  It’s something of an example of starting with a small idea and running with it.  This family of three typefaces (Regular, Small Capitals and Capitals) was inspired by a line of lettering seen on a late 19th Century enamel advertisement made by Chromo of Wolverhampton (hence the family name).  The family grew, topsy-like, from a recreation of these initial fifteen capital letterforms to the three complete typefaces offered here.  The three typefaces are ideal for advertising and poster work with a Victorian, Edwardian, or ‘Steam-punk‘ theme.  They would also be eminently suitable for signage inspired by the same eras or (as we’ve seen a number of our other typeface families prove very popular) for book covers of period related novels and historical works.  Finally, these slender elegant display faces are just plain fun!
