Most of my fonts are influenced by the design movements of the twentieth century, but I have a soft spot for Egyptian slab serifs and the fat faces.
They originated in the early part of the nineteenth century with the spread of advertising, and the desire to shout louder than the other guys. I like their no-nonsense robust looks, and perhaps for this reason their popularity endures.
(They have nothing to do with Egypt incidentally, but their appearance coincided with a fashion for all things Egyptian, and they somehow picked up the name and it’s stuck.)
For Talbot Type Kinghorn, I’ve opted for a more-or-less even weight of stroke throughout, in pursuit of a smooth, geometric result, and created two variations in the process.
Kinghorn 105 is the more conventional, while Kinghorn 205 has a few more curved characters; take your pick.
