number 1 in a series of 4 westerfaces

Kim Buker Chansler, Carl Crossgrove, Carol Twombly worked together to create a series of western typefaces.

Rosewood is based on the traditional slab serif typeface Clarendon and was inspired by the display faces created during the industrial revolution, faces which were more ornate.

Rosewoods has two ornamental “weights” , which make it stand out when used properly. It is a bi-color font, which means that there is a “fill” that can be used for decoration on the inner spaces of the regular.

serif: slab
‘weights’: regular and fill
characteristics: very recognizable because of the fill and rounded bracket serifs
note: Rosewood’s Regular version is designed to overlay the Fill version for two-color printing
