Village

Alphabet Specimen

Letterpress Print / 2015

We designed this specimen for the inaugural Typographics conference in New York City. We used at least two glyphs per foundry to represent Village as a whole. The specimen measures 8.75” x 12.75”, and it was printed letterpress in two passes: one in Black, the other blind.

There is a separate 3.75” x 12.75” letterpress printed key that accompanies the specimen. This piece shows each featured glyph, noting the font name, designer & foundry.
