Artype is an ongoing collection of typefaces by Andy Peat – type designer, graphic designer and artist.
A classic hand lettering typeface based on the traditional round foundational hand lettering learnt while at art school. Create perfect hand lettering every time.
I want to develop this typeface further by pushing an even more calligraphic style in the lettering. I love the sharpness and roundness in the foundational hand and wished I had studied it in more detail while I had the chance under the calligrapher John Smith (yes, his real name), author of The Art of Calligraphy.
My version of this typeface is now available in Monotype’s MyFonts type library.
