New Yorker Type Classic

Designed by Gert Wiescher, New Yorker Type Classic is an art deco and display serif font family. This typeface has seven styles and was published by Wiescher-Design.

New-Yorker-Type was one of the first typefaces I tried my hand at in 1985. I meant it as a revival of the typeface used by the New Yorker magazine. I did not scan it. I just looked at the type and redrew it completely by hand. Only much later did I come to know, that there is a bundle of similar typefaces of that period. Rea Irvin’s design for New-Yorker magazine was just one of them, maybe the best.
In the next step I repaired some of the mistakes that I made more than thirty years ago.
Now on the eve of 2020 I gave the font a complete overhaul and added a set of Swash Initials, Cyrillic and Greek glyphs and many ligatures. The font now has 1075 glyphs and is all set for most latin writing systems. On top of that I made two versions, a Classic one with rounded corners and a pointed Pro version for a more up-to-date look. Take your pick.
Yours sincerely, honoring Rea Irvin a great type- and magazine-designer, Gert Wiescher
