Chalfont by Alan Meeks

Today's typeface of choice, Chalfont, was created by lettering artist Alan Meeks, developed after he saw a photocopy of some News Gothic text where the ink had faded on the bottom of each character. "As character recognition is generally based on the top half of a character, readability was never compromised," he comments.

Chalfont is available to purchase over on YouWorkForThem.
