Newston Typeface

Newston is a revival typeface based on Morris Fuller Benton's Gothic, grotesque sans-serif back in the golden 1910's. Initially prepared for American Type Founders to modernize United States typography (and it did!), the typeface is now in the hands of public domain due to the defunct of ATF decade ago & lacking of active descendants.

I own one of the 60,000 copies - the ATF specimen book published in 1923. And I was fascinated - or mesmerized by it I'd say. So I figured I'd revive a typeface into digital font by referencing the book (at that point I've found out the copyright of the book has expired.).

Here's the result. After many (many) days and dozens of hours at work, Newston was born - a full cap title display font made with real attention to details.

I gave my utmost attention to every single glyph in it. As much as it made me fall for its simplicity and beauty by the end of first phase. And by giving my attention I don't mean just work on the individual characters - the real magic/ struggle happens when characters are made into words and sentences. That's right.

If you're looking for a title typeface that expresses simple integrity with a vintage favor, Newston is made especially for you. Try it - you'll like it.

Few things you should know about the gears in the aspect of utility.

- I'll be updating the font by the end of this month - with more symbols that are frequently used in our times. Suggestions are welcomed!

- You'll also find a pack of 12 vintage illustrations in AI vector & high resolution PNG. I packed them in as bonus to the font. These illustrations were scanned and optimized from my personal collection of vintage catalogs back in the early 1900's.

- The price will go up to atleast $19 once the 1st-week-promotion ends. It'll goes up again after I update the font by end of June. So now is the best timing to buy if you're interested!

- All Gearwright products are backed with a 30 days Satisfaction-or-your-money-back guarantee. I'll promptly refund your money (through Paypal) if requested. No question asked.
