Vtg Stencil UK No. 2
The Vtg Stencil series of fonts from astype are based on real world stencils. The UK No. 2 design was derived from authentic one inch A2 Roman stencil plates from Great Britain, manufactured around the 1950s. At first glance, they look like the familiar USA design of 2A Roman, but the British letters look more squarish, more narrow, with less contrast and with very pronounced serifs. The British design can’t deny it’s French roots.
Signature letters are the open K and Q and the figures 4 and 7.
Enjoy the vintage!
