Brothers

The inspiration for Brothers came from a bright chromolithographed letterhead designed around the turn of the century for the COLE BROTHERS traveling shows, an extravaganza of acrobatic and circus acts that included trained horses with bareback riders. There is a quality of boldness and daring in the letters that reflects the directness and bravado of circus performers.
As the Brothers font series grew, Downer made several alternate capitals for the Bold, then designed a Regular weight to match in style. Next came a lower case for the Regular and a set of slightly smaller (about 90%) caps to serve the full-size Bold Caps. These have the same alternate forms found in the companion font. Finally, a pseudo-italic version of the Regular was created. It is actually more an extreme oblique than it is a legitimate italic (having fewer cursive-inspired forms than normal), hence the name “Super Slant.”” It has alternates that match those in the Brothers Regular Alternates fonts, and a few extras as well.
