    Gewaard is an interpretation of Halfvette Aldine,
    shown in the Lettergiterij Amsterdam specimen of c.1906. 
    The original typeface was cut in a large size for display setting: for use in praybooks for example. Such a book would be used by grandmothers, so it had to be legible in poor lighting conditions. To achieve legibility the typeface is rather condensed, with a large x-height and dark overall colour.
    Gewaard is a Type and Media revival project, at Royal Academy of Art, in The Hague.
    Project leader: Paul van der Laan
    Soon available for sale in a family, with several styles!
