The release of the Hawkhurst type family marks the arrival of a contemporary successor to the legion of classic British text faces. Designer Richard Yeend has created a successful reinterpretation of the transitional typeface style. A unique characteristic of this new design is the serifs, which differ slightly throughout the alphabet. Their playful terminals do not distract from legibility of the line; rather, they function in larger sizes as an intriguing element, alluring the reader into the textHawkhurst contains large x-heights and a wide base, in order to swiftly lead the eye across the page. To see for yourself, take a closer look at Yeend's clever design: included are two weights of text, italics, small caps, and alternate figures. Hawkhurst is part of the Take Type 5 collection, released in 2003 by Linotype.
Hawkhurst supports 71 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
