In collaboration with the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum and Faire Type, we designed the Etta typeface for the production of new wood types through the museum's unique blend of antique and contemporary technologies.

The Etta typeface, named for Hamilton Manufacturing's first bookkeeper, Etta Shove Hamilton, is a display typeface in two styles: East and West. Its two variations can be combined or used as a chromatic font.

The typeface takes cues from the design experimentation happening in the heyday of mid 19th Century wood type, but filters it through 1960s photo-type sensibilities.
