Fellowship is a hand drawn font published by Canada Type.
Named in tribute to the members of the American Typecasting Fellowship, this font is an original expression of Jim Rimmer’s left-handed calligraphy. It was designed and cut in 24 p in the early 1980s, then cast as foundry type on Jim’s own Thompson typecasting machine.
This alphabet exhibits classic semi-italic text tension, with sqaurish minuscules and hybrid renaissance majuscules. Jim’s unique sense of restrained but attractive typo-calligraphic creativity puts on quite a show here.
Fellowship was updated and remastered for the latest technologies in 2013. It comes with plenty of built-in alternates and ligatures. Its glyphset contains over 420 characters, and supports the majority of Latin-based languges.
20% of this font’s revenues will be donated to the GDC Scholarship Fund, supporting higher typography education in Canada.
