Typeface notes:

Moonglow is an all-cap family with a broad range of faces from light to bold, and from condensed to extended. It adds an accent of drama when set with sturdy text faces, and a flash of light and shade when used in short solo settings. Moonglow has its roots in letters that Michael Harvey, the designer, has drawn for inscriptions. Harvey is an accomplished carver of letters in stone and wood. Before carving, he draws letters in outline, increasing the line weights fractionally on one side of the letters to produce the illusion of depth. He also applies this concept to letters drawn for book jackets and logos, where he creates a graphic effect by playing with the contrast between the outline of letters and the forms inside. In the lighter weights of Moonglow, the thin dark outlines define the characters and surround larger interior forms. In the heavier weights, massive dark outlines become the forms that surround slim wisps of characters. Letter proportions vary also, from condensed to extended, adding further graphic possibilities. The name Moonglow evokes the waxing and waning of the moon, and parallels the type family's range from brightness to darkness.
