Performance, like typefaces, has a long history and vivid expression and is always evolving. Montage Display is a typeface designed based on a specimen published by Hamilton Wood Type in collaboration with William Caslon. The original typeface was labeled No.629.

The goal of this typeface revival project is to recreate this wood type and make it suitable for film and theatre titles. Developed from the original specimen, this typeface is now improved to include a full alphabet and punctuation marks.
