Paying tribute to the typographic diversity and production methods of the Nineteenth century, the Pyte Foundry offered a weekly free-font every Monday of the year 2016. The aim was not historical accuracy, but rather to revive the spirit of the era following The Industrial Revolution, which is often neglected by the narrative of typographic history.
The constant strive for stylistic innovation in the 1800s led to designs showing an immense degree of imagination. Nonchalantly referring this vibrant period — moving between revival, tribute and parody — the Pyte Foundry aspires to digitally reintroduce some of these typographic eccentricities without indulging in unnecessary nostalgia.
The Pyte Legacy Library comprises a curated selection of the 2016 Free-Fount Galore of Display Typefaces. The typefaces in this growing collection are completely overhauled and come with an extended Character Set as shown in the Specimen Sheet (.pdf).
