HWT Bernice is an ornament font system designed by Marian Bantjes for the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum's border stamping machine as a contemporary application for this 150 year old machine. The digital font version expands a bit beyond the punch machine and allows designers to assemble a multitude of options using flipped and rotated variations of these basic shapes by using simple keystrokes. This specimen chapbook begins to show the user what is possible with the HWT Bernice font by giving examples of arabesques, patterns, borders, and even assembled letters that can all be created from these shapes.
Covers are letterpress printed in red and blue inks on sunflower yellow stock. Insides printed dark violet.
