The Kontiki typeface digitally simulates a handmade woodprint, but is less expensive to produce and easier to correct. It offers a graphic designer the possibility to create a printed image that is very close to a traditional woodcut. To create the Kontiki fonts, 193 glyphs were manually cut into five wooden plates and carefully printed by hand. From countless test prints, the most charming four were selected and digitized to create the different styles. For each of the 560 characters, the font offers four different qualities of print and gives you the opportunity to create a vivid typography according to your own visions.
