Handblock (Display Font): Tuesday Type Treat

Designer Gerren Lamson has created a delightful pair of stout uppercase typefaces called HANDBLOCK inspired by historic wood type, which can be had for only $15.

Inspired by the playfulness of arranging individual wood type letters, I created HANDBLOCK—a pair of typefaces that contains four variations of uppercase letterforms. By combining a mixture of uppercase and lowercase letters with HANDBLOCK regular, bold, or both, you can create uniquely weighted headlines, strong emphatic quotes, and other typographic elements full of bold personality.

HANDBLOCK contains two font files (regular and bold) in .ttf and .otf file formats; it also contains 3 pre-packaged @font-face kits (regular, bold, both) for web implementation. You’re free to use this in commercial & personal work (please review the EULA doc in the zip package), but please don’t redistribute or resell this typeface. HANDBLOCK currently only supports the English language.
