12 line Trafton Script

Many of the later faces cut by Hamilton Manufacturing Co. and American Wood Type originated as foundry type or monotype designs. Trafton Script is one these. It was designed by Howard Allen Trafton, New York, in 1933, and cut by Bauer Type Foundry in Germany. Its long ascenders and descenders give it a modicum of sophistication, but Trafton still manages a certain informality. Unlike other script fonts (like the yet to be proofed Brush Script), this wood (side grain) version of Trafton was cut on an upright body so it does not require angled furniture. No imprint was found.
