Woodford Bourne is a brand new 19th century grotesque typeface. The design is a tribute to the historic stone cast type in the building faÃ§ades of the former Woodford, Bourne & Co. in Cork City, Ireland. For many years I had admired the type’s simplicity and strength, so I decided to faithfully reproduce those letters and expand them to a fully working font with 500 glyphs per case.
A key feature of Woodford Bourne is the ability to change the feel of your typography with just one click. Switch from contemporary to vintage style by selecting “Stylistic Set 1” â€“ this gives Woodford Bourne a unique versatility which I am sure you will enjoy playing with in your designs.
It is a solid, reliable “workhorse” font family that reproduces well at all sizes… it’s also great for branding and identities.
