Introducing 'Otto Chromatic' - Redrawn by Richard Small who rescued the original inline woodtype and created an outline to go with it.
'Otto Chromatic' is made up of 'Otto Inline' and 'Otto Outline', you can purchase either set individually.
12 line (50.8mm) version cut from end grain English Sycamore (part of the Maple family) wood using a combination of modern CNC technology and traditional hand woodworking tools (including an original printers saw), made to English type-high (0.918in or 23.3mm) within plus or minus 0.1mm tolerance, sealed with shellac and hand finished with a traditional polished printing surface.
