Broadsheet

Broadsheet is a historical font family. This typeface has two styles and was published by Three Islands Press.

Having in hand an original issue of The New-England Weekly Journal ("Containing the most Remarkable Occurrences Foreign & Domestick") from April 8, 1728, and a commemorative reprint of the Massachusetts Sun ("Americans!---Liberty or Death!---Join or Die!"), from May 3, 1775, I set to work.
The result: a full-featured font family that simulates the type on printed matter from the Colonial American period.
Broadsheet gives you all the double-s ligatures you could ever dream of.
Looks implausibly authentic in either display type or long blocks of body copy.
You’ll even find a couple printer’s flourishes here.
