Jones Regular

A monoline homage to the inscriptions of David Jones

Jones Regular

Jones regular is a monoline typeface that we designed in homage to the many painted inscriptions poet and artist David Jones produced throughout his career. Perhaps best known for In Parenthesis, his epic poem about the First World War, Jones was also a prolific lettering artist and illustrator.

Our typeface aims to capture the fluidity and spirit of much of Jones’ lettering work, while adhering to a consistent visual logic more in keeping with contemporary type design. The typeface was used extensively throughout the exhibition A mythic understanding: inspired by David Jones, held in November 2018 to mark the centenary of WWI.
