Historical font revival

Type deisng c_t ligature Rosart revival

A project Eyal worked on in collaboration with The Enschedé Font Foundry was the experimental revival of the Two Line English Body Rosart, designed in the 18th century by the Belgian punch cutter Jacques François Rosart (1714–1777).

Type design Rosart historical font revival

In a typeface revival, old drawings or prints of lead type are interpreted to design a new, comprehensive font suitable for digital text composition.

This revival, based on original samples from the J. Enschedé collection, aimed to interpret the spirit of the primary work as faithfully as possible. We deliberately preserved its irregularities and strived to remain invisible.
