About Americane
Wood type seen through a new lens. Americane is not based on any single existing wood type style, it is actually a combination of the most salient styles of Von Döhren’s survey of the American wood type landscape, applied to a broad use type family. Starting with the lightest weights, the designer’s sensitivity to form delivers a lightline more representative of metal gothics of the period, exhibiting also a subtle dynamism in the curves. Toward Americane’s heavy end, its true character shows, as it is here that the idiosyncratic texture peculiar to wood type begins to emerge. The result is something new that’s still evocative of type you can hold in your hand.
