Brunel is an English modern; an anthology of the late eighteenth and nineteenth century English foundries. Drawing from original source material (most notably the Caslon foundry and the work of John Isaac Drury), it comes in a large number of weights, from the regular through to the fat face, and has been drawn in several optical sizes. Paul Barnes began work on this family in 1995, and I joined the effort in 2005, finishing the first round of styles for the launch of Condé Nast Portfolio. More information and better specimens can be found on Paul's site. (Wait for the animation if you want to see the full range of weights.)
