Hey everyone, hope all is well.
I am looking for some references for a project I'm working on. I am creating a rounded (or for better: rounded corners) typeface that is based on the "western style" fat faces and slab serifs that were used for posters and display/signage. I am using "HWT artz" house industries' "benguiat buffalo" and "buckboard pro" as a kind of reference for how things looked, but was wondering if anyone knows of any good references that are similar? I want to purchase the book:American Wood Type, 1828-1900, but I'm not sure if it will have what I'm looking for. Im looking for a slab with rounded corners similar to what you would have found with wood cuts from that time period (that kind of hand made look you would find with something like BE block, or other bethold renders)
Thanks in advance!
