Liberator is from a bygone era, when our grandparents fought for the freedom we enjoy today. Now remastered and in 3 weights, this bomber-inspired face provides a masculine punch to any project or design. Full Alphabet with glyphs and numerals. A delicately crafted display font with a lot of character, Nelma is perfect for setting beautiful type with an impact. This font is distributed as a .EPS file.

Fantastic tutorial, Dustin! I love these types of effects. Do you have any tips on using this with white text? When I change the color overlay to white, the effect is not quite the same. Thanks!

Really dig the technique and end results. I used the sample pack with a different piece of art I had to make this letter-sized poster for my work area. Put some photos on Behance: https://www.behance.net/gallery/35399591/Wendell-Berry-at-my-Desk

Very similar end result to what I get when I use my old letterpress and get the inking right. Impressive pack.
