Woodford Bourne PRO
Refined and expanded to include lots of new features.
Surprise, surprise, Woodford Bourne PRO is the evolution of my original Woodford Bourne typeface.
It was inspired by the iconic stone cast letters on the façades of the former Woodford, Bourne & Co. buildings in Cork City, Ireland. You can read all about that here… so what’s new?
Having used the fonts (a lot!) in my own design work, I found myself yearning for small caps and so I set about creating a set. Then I thought it’d be great to have petite caps that harmonise with the lowercase character set so you could play with some unicase typography—as has been successful in both Pseudonym and Eponymous—so I added those too. Then what about underlined caps, they’d be useful too wouldn’t they? And catchwords as well – there are two sets of those in WBPRO. Then there are some discretionary ligatures that help to make Woodford Bourne PRO even more versatile, for instance, there’s now a special “www” ligature for adding a stylish touch to your URLs.
