Announcing HWT Unit Gothic- A Wood Type Font System in 7 Widths


Wednesday, May 01st, 2013 | 28 comments



The Unit Gothic series was released by Hamilton Manufacturing Co. in 1907. This sans serif family features one of the first multi width/weight type 'systems', anticipating the Univers font system by 50 years. This set of 7 fonts was designed to aid in press room efficiency and its incremental variation in widths gave poster printers unprecedented flexibility in fitting copy while using consistently harmonious fonts.

This HWT release is the first ever digital version of these fonts. Each font contains 600 glyphs including Greek and Cyrillic character sets as well as alternate characters which are based on the actual special character production patterns from the Hamilton Wood Type Museum collection.

The system features:

HWT Unit Gothic 716 - 50% wider
HWT Unit Gothic 717 - 25% wider
HWT Unit Gothic 718 - (Standard width which others are based on)
HWT Unit Gothic 719 - 25% narrower
HWT Unit Gothic 720 - 50% narrower
HWT Unit Gothic 721 - 62.5% narrower
HWT Unit Gothic 722 - 75% narrower

HWT Unit Gothic digitized by James Todd

David Shields has written an essay for Slanted Magazine that gives a closer look at this font system and its place in history. Follow this link to read the article online.

A font decision might impact your opinion of folks vying for school board seats, lawyers opening new offices, or a coffee cafe you've never heard of. People favored typefaces that were more compatible with their own political philosophy, according to our research. The typeface you choose affects how a presentation is viewed. Professional, conventional typefaces, such as Verdana or Times New Roman, should be used in serious business presentations.

Good morning! Thanks for this information in this post, as it's very interesting and useful for me, so I can advice this blog to all my friends! But I know for sure that with so many scam writing companies currently operational in the industry it may become too confusing for inexperienced customers to decide which educational agency to place their trust in. There is, however, only one professional capstone papers writing company which is trusted by thousands around the planet - it's the best company I've ever found before!
