Waldorf Text

WALDORF TEXT is my digital revival of a classic “lost” font of the same name. An elegant blackletter font with details that spell luxury.

Waldorf Text was produced by Barnhart Brothers and Spindler Type Foundry in 1914. When American Type Founders acquired BBB&S, they continued to produce it, including it in their 1934 and 1941 catalogs. And then it was gone, never making the transition from type to film or digital. (Thanks, Bill, for all your help!)

WaldorfText_monolinkI’ve completely redrawn the font, maintaining the graceful lines while expanding the font and making other slight changes for modern use. There are also new companion Bold and Black versions with degrees of less detail and more solid.

Each font includes caps, lower case, numbers, punctuation, and international characters.
