Parris 1925

Among our recent acquisitions of source material, we discovered some great samples of German letterpress type from the 1930s.  These included a number of interesting fonts in the art deco and constructivist styles.  Very modern looking for the period.

Producing modern digital fonts from letterpress type is challenging.  It’s mostly a process of redrawing the letters from scratch and simple measurements of the original type.  We’ve started doing this for some of the most interesting samples in the collection, and the first of these is the inspiration for our new Mannerheim font.

Mannerheim is an attractive title and poster font, with a full upper case character set, numerals and punctuation.  It has some similarity to our Illuminata font based on 1960s poster lettering.

You can try the DEMO version of Mannerhiem for free. The demo version has a limited version of the character set. Or you can ORDER the full version for only $24.
