I always loved the imperfection and quirkyness of the early wood typefaces.
Text: David Sudweeks, FontShop
Wood type seen through a new lens.

Americane is not based on any single existing wood type style, it is actually a combination of the most salient styles of Von Döhren’s survey of the American wood type landscape, applied to a broad use type family. Starting with the lightest weights, the designer’s sensitivity to form delivers a lightline more representative of metal gothics of the period, exhibiting also a subtle dynamism in the curves. Toward Americane’s heavy end, its true character shows, as it is here that the idiosyncratic texture peculiar to wood type begins to emerge. Through it all, the high waists and the high x-height, Von Döhren creates something new that’s still evocative of type you can hold in your hand.

OpenType Features – or what else you can do with it, besides designing your next wood type poster.

A font of today’s needs has to include more than just the alphabet and some punctuation. Besides a big number of accented letters, making sure that the typeface has a good language support, a font should include several features for excellent typographic work joining forces with the layout applications of the time and of course the user. Here is a selection of what this font family has to offer under the hood.

39785,09

Tabular Figures

In addition to the standard lining figures, the fonts contain a set of tabular figures. This means that all numbers have the same width, which is useful for setting up invoices, tables or every other task where the figures should have a structured appearance among themselves.

Americas horizontal width is 2,680 miles.

Oldstyle Figures

When lining figures are used in a reading text they often produce a visual stretch in the text and disturb the grey value. It has the same effect if you use ALL CAPS in a text. One solution could be to make the numbers slightly smaller and give them some more space in-between. The other, more elegant way is to use the old style figures, they have ascenders and descenders like the lower case letters and will fit seamlessly in the text.

Alternates

Besides the standard letters a font sometimes contains several versions of a letter called alternates. You can exchange the alternate with the standard letter by selecting it through the Opentype feature panel and every letter of the stylistic set will be exchanged. Often this results in a totally different optical appearance of the typeface.

Americane and Americane Condensed: Two families that are made for each other.
Americane Family
A Type System

The two families, consisting of a normal and a condensed width, can be combined nicely and work together e.g. in a complex design system. Not to mention that each one has also the strength to work alone. Representing the same characteristics, the space saving condensed version can be set very compact, while Americane “normal” just has the self confidence to take the space it needs. → Check out Americane.
