Goldwork is a new font based on lettering designed for metalworking inscriptions in the 17th century. It’s in the tradition of other fonts we’ve done based on engraved letters like Monumental Initials and Engravers Gothic. It has some quirky characteristics which are unusual for late gothic lettering, as well as some strange carryovers from earlier styles, not surprising for a style which appeared in the early modern era contemporary with the transition from hand copied manuscripts to printing, leading to changes in lettering styles which carried over into other media.
Goldwork has a full character set with capitals and lowercase letters, plus numbers and punctuation. You can download and try out the free demo version of Goldwork (will work on Mac or PC). If you like it you can buy the complete character set with all the extra features from our Ordering Site.
