The Regulator typeface was created from the hand lettered type seen on Regulator clocks of the late 19th century. This is also where the typeface's namesake comes from. The letters are naturally condensed with pointed serifs, terminals and spurs. Some of the inspiration also comes from woodcut type as seen in W.M. H. Page wood type catalouges of the era as well. The typeface is complete with upper and lowercase letterforms as well as numerals and symbols.
