Having in hand an original issue of The New-England Weekly Journal ("Containing the most Remarkable Occurrences Foreign & Domestick") from April 8, 1728, and a commemorative reprint of the Massachusetts Sun ("Americans!---Liberty or Death!---Join or Die!"), from May 3, 1775, I set to work. The result: a full-featured typeface family that simulates printed matter from the Colonial American period. Both roman and italic styles give you all the double-s ligatures you could ever dream of. Looks implausibly authentic in either display type or long blocks of body copy. Both roman and italic styles come with true small caps, historical ligatures, old-style and lining figures, Central/Eastern European alphabets, even a few printer's flourishes°™more than 800 glyphs in all.
