Estragon Regular

Based on a few characters posted by the Type Founders Archive on Instagram, later identified as a spread from "Harrild & Sons' New & Abridged Specimens" (circa 1890). Unfortunately, no further information or characters could be found. Designed upon by Johannes Breyer in early 2017, Estragon comes in the styles Wildstyle, Arrow, Bubble – and can be combined via OpenType. First used for the identity of Condo New York by Sam de Groot in 2017, who called the design a mixture of "Kurt Schwitters and Wildstyle".

Bingo Bold

Bingo is based on a type sample published in Rob Roy Kelly’s "American Wood Type, 1828-1900 (…)". Unlike its source, Bingo’s inner and outer contours are drawn with polygons, which makes it appear smooth and rounded at small size, or brutal when scaled up. A second set of monolinear, thin punctuation has been added in 2012.
