Font-of-the-Week: History

Typotheque has created a typeface called History that is made up of 21 layers (font variations) inspired by the evolution of typography. It starts with a basic set of Roman caps and each of the iterations shares the same widths and metrics so each layer can be combined to create a vast array of type styles, adding slabs, pixels, shadows or decorations. History is an OpenType family that is available with an online application called History Remixer to help control and mix the 21 layer options. History Remixer allows users to enter the text only once and then adjust various layers' colors, visibility and opacity and then generate a hi-rez PDF of the finished lettering.
