Isadore is an original typeface based on documents I collected while researching my family tree. The documents included immigration and naturalization records, as well as censuses and city directories from early to mid 20th century New York. I named the typeface "Isadore" after my great-great grandfather's brother, who was a mysterious figure in my family tree who ended up opening doors to the discovery of more and more information. So far, I have designed a display version and a text version and I plan on expanding the font family in the upcoming semester.

The type specimen booklet I designed for Isadore includes a photo of Isadore himself, large print displays of the letters, a family tree, and recreations of some of the documents I collected in my research typeset fully in Isadore.
