Thanks for sharing this fabulous find, Clay! Great to see you among our contributors.
(Some of Clay’s work has been featured on Fonts In Use before. Check out his website as well as The Smudge, a monthly newspaper, and Caboose, his imprint for limited edition artists prints and zines.)
And a big thanks to Matthijs for helping to track down the missing typeface IDs! This is our first documented Use for Ronaldson and Pisa. And the entries for the spiny Ornamented and Rimmed were specifically created for it.
For anyone who’s looking for a digital version of the former, see Vredenburgh, made by Jason Wickersty and released in 2012 as part of The Printer’s Type Case – Fonts of the Civil War Era, Vol. 1. Like the historical model, the weathered font is caps-only. However, the upper- and lowercase hold two different alphabets based on different optical sizes. The uppercase appears to be based on the same cut as used by Push Pin Studios.
As soon as he showed this to me I knew it had to be on Fonts In Use. Thanks for contributing, Clay!
The “IN” in PIN looks like a hand-drawn rendition of Marble Heart.
Not unlikely! Added.
But in this post, the typography was done by Morgan Press.
