Floodfonts Releases Kontiki Typeface
The Kontiki typeface digitally simulates a handmade woodprint, but is less expensive to produce and easier to correct. To create the Kontiki fonts, 193 glyphs were manually cut into five wooden plates and carefully printed by hand. From countless test prints, the most charming four were selected and digitized. For each of the 560 characters, the font features four different qualities of print and designer the possibility to create a printed image that is very close to a traditional woodcut.
