Tangent is a curious hand-hewn sans-serif originating as wood type from the Morgans and Wilcox in the late 1800s. Hamilton Wood Type Manufacturing had their own version also called Tangent but in a slightly different weight.
The design takes the sans serif genre into odd directions with quirky alternates and nesting variants.
This font was revived from the source wood type held in the Cary Graphic Arts Collection and expanded into the 500+ glyph set for release as part of the HWT collection.
P22 has a broadside available printed with the original wood type font.
