The Doves Type®



After three years research & drawing using source material from the Doves Press, Robert Green’s digital restoration of the famously lost Doves Roman, The Doves Type®, is now available to purchase. An updated Doves Type® Regular, released in January 2015, came after Green’s discovery of a portion of the original metal Doves type in the Thames, replacing the initial Imprint weight which was first available back in 2013.
