A TrueType Font by S. John Ross

Cumberland Games & Diversions

This font, "Hultog," is a simple "antiqued" font based on some classic Venetian-style typefaces (or rather, what happened to them once I munged them rather a lot in bitmap form and then scanned them back into a font). The goal was to create a simple antique font that wasn't quite as munged as most others, something that might be suitable for long stretches of text, if need be.

Hultog was around for a couple of years without an Italic version. I never needed one in the original project I designed Hultog for, and in those days I wasn't sure I knew how to go about it, anyway. Folks enjoyed the font anyway, though, and one publisher even used it as the body font for an entire book (I don't actually _recommend_ this, but it was flattering)!

As of then, I promised myself I'd get around to doing a proper italic version (seeing machine-tiled pseudoitalics throughout that book was embarassing), and this set includes that promised expansion, with both Hultog and Hultog Italic. Both sets are extensively hand-kerned, as well; be sure and use them in an application that supports kerning.
