Hamilton Wood Type (HWT), established in 2012, is a joint venture between P22 type foundry and the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum. The classic designs in this collection are based on scarce printed specimens and actual wood type from the historic Hamilton Museum. The inclusion of HWT to the P22 roster is a perfect addition to the legacy of keeping classic designs relevant and usable in contemporary design.
