FH Phemister™ Display

FH Phemister Display FH Phemister is named after the character designer Alexander Phemister. It was inspired by the letters created in the Edinburgh type foundry. Vertical stress – thick, short, bracketed serifs – Most capitals have uniform width. Inspired by Phemister Old Style. During the 1850s a series of books with historical themes was published by the Chiswick Press, set in a revival of Caslon’s old-style types. These editions met with considerable success, precipitating a general move away from the gaunt modern types that were widespread in bookwork at the time and a return to the friendlier styles of earlier days, remodelled to fit comfortably with the tastes of contemporary readers. “The Visual History of Type, p.134”
