Lost Letterforms

  • Lost Letterforms is a large format, coffee table publication based around the subject matter of typeface revivial.
    The publication uses three revivalist typefaces:
    Haas Unica, a recent revival by Monotype; 
    Doves Type, a typeface revived from lead type found in the Thames; 
    Times Modern Swash – Revived by Joe Leadbeater for the publication.

    The content is based around sourced pre-digital publications sourced and honoured within the publication; with selected letterforms digitalised. The letterforms are used as a base for a typeface, with characteristics and precise measurements taken. These details can be used to create the rest of a consistant typeface in the future.
