Recovered Font

If a typeface can be famous outside the world of typophiles, then the Doves type makes the grade. Invented and used to striking effect by the Doves Press in early twentieth-century England, the beauty of the letters has long enamored those who appreciate superior book design. But the original Doves type was notoriously dumped in the River Thames after one of the great bookish spats in history. Fast forward to 2014, when Robert Green dredged pieces of type from the river, which the folks at Typespec have used to create a digital facsimile of the Doves type for personal use. Your friends and family will no doubt appreciate the clean lines and subtle beauty of your emails. £40/$61
