    I was honored to be asked to design the specimens for the latest Wood Type Revival release, Grecian Light Face.

    It's also available on Typekit

    Nice work! I've been looking forward to this one. It's the most useful WTR font yet for sure.

    @Ben Didier: Yeah dude, It was easy mocking up specimen ideas... I could see it utilized in a lot of different places/ways.

    Also, sounds like something a badger would say. If badgers cared to speak, that is.

    +1 to specimen soundtracks. I shuffled up some classic rock for the Parkinson release.

    That moustachey fleuron is a nice touch. Really holds the piece together. Although it's not part of Grecian's character set, it looks really good with the type because of the way you matched its line thicknesses with the stroke widths of words: at its most dense, parts of the ornament are about as thick as the thin strokes in WHUSKY; in thinner spots, widths are similar to strokes in the small text.

    There must be a term for elements that tie compositions together formally. The image is great, the type is great, but it's this little key ingredient that makes it feel complete.
