New Yorker Plus downloadPublisher: Wiescher-Design
New Yorker Plus is a display serif font family. This typeface has six styles and was published by Wiescher-Design.

NewYorkerType was one of the first typefaces I tried my hand at in 1985.
I meant it as a revival of the typeface used by the New Yorker magazine. I did not scan it in, I just looked at the type and redrew it completely by hand. So it is not just a copy, but rather a redesign. Only much later did I come to know, that there is a bundle of similar typefaces of that period. Rea Irvin’s design for New-Yorker magazine was just one of them, but the best.
Lately I looked at the fonts and found, that they should be worked over, what I did. I added a »Swashes« set for each weight and genereally cleaned up the design.Plus I made the complete »Latin« set, so that all european countries can use it. (Except for the Greeks and Russians, sorry!)
Yours, sincerely once more honoring Rea Irvin a great type- and magazine-designer Gert Wiescher
