16th century, contemporary proportions

a newly designed (very complete & elaborate) font family from mister ‘henrik kubel’ a.k.a. A2 type called quite simply ‘antwerp’ which is full of historical references, as the man himself states:

…my passion and admiration for 15 and 16th century Italian, French and Dutch typefaces might shine through in Antwerp — I acknowledge that it has become an integral part of my ‘type dna’ — It’s how I design letters, fonts, alphabets and it’s also a direct translation of how I draw type by hand on paper — in other words, I have been conditioned by history!…

more details on the font and it’s process can be found here
