Belhampton – A Family of Six Faces

Yesterday we announced the name of our forthcoming Belhampton family, a display family in the best traditions of our popular ‘Birmingham New Street’, Bromwich and Wolverhampton families.  We’re now pleased to be able to show the six typefaces which will make up the family:

Just Wait ’til You See The Capitals…

It’s become a bit of a tradition at Greater Albion to bring out a Blackletter typeface in time for Christmas (not to say we never release them at other points in the year).  Regular readers might remember that last year’s was ‘Albion’s White Christmas’, a slightly humourous snow capped Blackletter.  This year’s project has been developing in the background for some time and should release in the next couple of weeks.  It will be called Beckinslade.  Here’s a first preview, of the lower case letter forms.  Over the next few days we’ll start to preview the Capital letters.
