Montefiore was originally referenced from a Victorian road sign found in Hove, England. It was drawn from a single photograph of Montefiore Road. The production methods utilised on the sign added warmth and depth that, through process affected the form of the type.
Initially drawn in two condensed weights, the typeface was created in a way not to re-draw it like-for-like, but by extrapolating an essence — this was pushed across the full two weights. In 2017, Montefiore was extended and updated to include six weights, and further language support.
NB. The weight naming in Montefiore has changed. The previous Regular is now SemiBold, and the previous Bold is now ExtraBold. Please contact us to update your files.
