Clarendon

Regular price £20.00

Clarendon is an English slab serif typeface that was designed by Robert Besley (1794-1876) for the Fann Street Foundry, London in 1845 and was named after the Clarendon Press in Oxford. It is known as the first registered typeface, but when the patents expired (which only lasted for three years at the time), it was soon copied by other foundries. In the 1950s Stephenson Blake marketed the typeface under the name of Consort.

The prints have been lovingly printed to perfection on our vintage Heidelberg cylinder press onto 300gsm Somerset Velvet 100% cotton paper.

Limited to 100 prints and individually numbered.
