Contemporary Brush font family

Overview

Filmotype, introduced in the 1950s, was the first mass-produced machine that used photographic techniques to replace hand lettering. That foundry quickly built up a large library of faces of hand-lettered type by famous lettering artists of the time, created by people like Tommy Thompson. As time passed, more and more genuine typefaces were brought into the Filmotype library, supplementing the original hand-lettered faces. Here we have a strong, generous pair of fonts that came from the Filmotype library. Nothing needs to be said about these two that your eye will not tell you. A document written in Contemporary Brush is, at the same time, both legible and informal. Although most informal faces do not want to be used for large blocks of text, this face can stand it.
