Wood Type Impressions

Without Walls

A Hi Res Digital Toolkit: Vol 1

From its Classical uses in posters and broadsheets, to the visual delights of the Modernist Avant-Garde, Wood Type has a charm all its own! Loving its textural beauty and allure, ourselves, we created Wood Type Impressions, an easy to use digital toolkit for today's Artists and Designers.

Volume 1 contains 250 high-resolution (300-dpi) grayscale TIFF images, suitable for use in any image editing program, such as Adobe Photoshop.

Each image set has been hand-printed on a relief proofing press in a progressive dark-to-light series using textured printmaking paper. Many sets also include experimental alternates (distressed, scratched, or solvent spritzed prints).

All images have been corrected and optimized; and each TIFF contains two layers: a white base; and a top layer with the grayscale letters or shapes with full 8-bit transparency.

Take a look below to see everything you get!

DOWNLOADING: Due to the size of these image files (about 3GB), you will receive separate download links approximately 30 minutes after you order (during our Chicago office hours). You can choose which image groups to download first, so you can start working before the whole set is downloaded.

IMPORTANT NOTE: These are NOT keyable fonts, they are raster images. Each letterform or shape will need to be hand set and composed... just as is intended with real Wood Type!
