Oolitic Roman MMX



Display Sheets for new typeface, 'Oolitic Roman MMX.' Three of which I will photo-etch. Please send me an email if you would like a print. The font was constructed in response to
the architectural fa├žades of Bath Spa. Each letter is constructed using an oversized brick shape; a characteristic which defines the appearence of Roman and Georgian buildings in and around
Bath. The characteristics of the font are based upon basic aesthetics of Roman typefaces. Oolitic Limestone is mined from nearby and neighbouring towns Bathampton and Combe Down.
Oolite is the mineral from which the Roman Baths, the Royal Crescent and many other buildings in Bath Spa were built, and is still used today.
