About Gothic Bold RS (reverse stress)
David Wolske, Letterpress Artist and author of Letterpress Daily, revived Gothic Bold RS by scanning a specimen from Rob Roy Kelly's American Wood Type: 1828–1900, drawing the vector letterforms, and making subtle modifications and corrected inconsistencies in the design. He also designed catchwords to match the style of the historic font.
Geri McCormick and Matt Rieck of VWT are part of the 'Wood Type Family' with Scott of Moore Wood Type (Dad) and me. They are a vital component of the printing community, preserving letterpress one letter at a time. Thank you for everything you do!
