Hemingway is an eight-weight sans serif font family designed by Alessandro Segalini and digitally engineered by Steve Jackaman (ITF) exclusively for the Red Rooster Collection in 2009.

Segalini was inspired by the prize-winning novel “The Old Man and the Sea” by Ernest Miller Hemingway.  The typeface was designed with a visual mixture of sharpness and harshness but shows soft and gentle hints – much like the qualities of the ocean in Hemingway’s novel.

Hemingway’s unique inclusion of angular and sharp terminals mixed with the calligraphic nature of its italic weights gives it an antique, worn look as if carved into wood with a knife.  It is excellent for announcements, invitations, literature, and more.
