New Font: Rockne

Rockne is based on samples of mid-20th century wood type in a style which was clearly an influence on the poster lettering of the 1960s as demonstrated in our Butterfield, Harbinger and Pantagruel. It clearly comes out of the Art Nouveau tradition, and with wood type already obsolete at the time the font was made, it presents a chronological anomaly and seems to fit in the gap between the art nouveau period and the psychedelic art movement.

You can download and try the demo version of Rockne in TrueType format for Mac or PC. The full version of the font is available from our ordering site.
