Background

DeLittle Chromatic is a distinctively British display face in two colors. Its forms alternate between comical sweeps and rigid brutalism; it always has a frenetic, undulating motion due to the wild variance in character heights.

DeLittle Chromatic was issued by DeLittle of York around the turn of the century under the name No. 56/54.

WTR DeLittle Chromatic was drawn from 16-line (192 point) wood type. It is a display face, and is best used at larger sizes.
