Hathaway Text

By Daniel Nisbet · San Jose, California, USA

Hathaway Text

Hathaway Text is a translation serif designed for 10–14 point text, taking inspiration from a fusion of slab serif typefaces and a calligraphic pen. The typeface is suited for long-form reading on modern screens. The name comes from my neighborhood park in San Jose, California.
