The German guy from Italy
The Wood Heinz fonts are classic display typefaces. The design looks very familiar – like the famous German Block type, but these wooden types are from Italy, a me-too product which were probably produced and distributed by Xilografia di Verona in the 1930s.
I have redrawn these letters, transferred it into digital fonts and tried to preserve the warm vintage look. I slightly modernized some letters and for better spacing and legibility I opened the counters and made the font to work on smaller text sizes too.
Many adverts and labels require a narrower font design, so I developed a condensed version called Wood Heinz No. 2. Both widths are available in a clean (New) and worn (Regular) style. Since both families share the same stem weight you can mix both together like it was common with wood type in the letterpress days.
Wood Heinz No. 2 and No. 4 offering up to four »printed look« variations of all the Latin base letters and numbers. An OpenType letter rotator is programmed into the fonts to emulate the randomness of old wood type printing on live typing. Please ensure the OpenType feature Contextual Alternates (calt) is turned on by default in your text setting application. You can switch manually to the alternate letters by using the Stylistic Sets 1 – 4. Stylistic Set 5 will activate the more common look of the capital letter R with a straight leg.
Enjoy the vintage!
