Family Pack - 4 fonts


The Vtg Stencil fonts from astype are based on real world stencils from several countries. The US No.4 design was derived from a typical antique American stencil-plate. This revolving stencil-plate was invented by Eugene L. Tarbox and patented in 1868. It was a mass produced product and a very common tool in the United States.

In case of US No.4 an original early plate from New York Stencil Works was used. The Regular font style is a clean font design featuring a full Latin glyph set including some typical stencil ornaments and tabular figures. The Paint font style is made from true stenciled letters and features all the letters of the stencil-plate only.

Most of the later stencil packages call these shapes 2A Roman – like its known and produced till today – but the later designs are more straight with less sexy curves. So I see this design as an early but very close model of a 2A Roman font.

If you like the later interlocking design have a look to my Vtg Stencil US No. 2 font.
