February 11, 2013
On this Valentine’s week, we are pleased to announce another labor of love by our master of the calligraphic script, Richard Lipton. With typefaces like Avalon, Sloop, and Tangier, Lipton continually transforms the elegance of pen-on-paper into beautiful, functional fonts. His latest is Savanna Script.
Just a few days after we released Serge, the fonts are already being used by the premier purveyor of personal propulsion, Le Jet! Peruse the dynamic online catalog of this retro-forward-thinking enterprise, revel in the clever copy rendered entirely in webfonts from Webtype, and (if you’re using a modern browser like IE 10, Chrome 22 or Firefox 4 or later) delight in the OpenType swash caps.
Can’t get enough of this ultra moderne technologie? Cyrus Highsmith is posting more of his original Le Jet graphics on his personal blog, Cyrumblr.
We are delighted to introduce Cyrus Highsmith’s latest design in a simultaneous release for the desktop and web. Bonjour, Serge!
Already available on newsstands everywhere, so to speak — Quiosco, designed by Cyrus Highsmith, is now part of our Retail library and available for licensing and download.
While initially conceived for newspaper text, Quiosco has also found gainful employment in a variety of magazines — Sports Illustrated, TV Guide, Outside, and The Hollywood Reporter, to name-drop just a few.

A new screen print is available from tinyshowcase – another variation from my kaiju series.
Here in the northern hemisphere, summer is in full swing and the growing season will soon reach its peak. At Font Bureau, we’ve already got one crop that’s ripe for the picking:
Introducing Turnip, a new font family by David Jonathan Ross.
Every time I come back from TypeCon, I always promise myself I am not going to ramble on about how awesome it was for days after it’s over. But once again, I’ve failed. TypeCon 2012 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin: You were wonderful!
Ever wonder where your friend the typophile got all those cool letters to decorate their home? There are antique shops and flea markets everywhere, but nothing beats Brimfield. Even its websites are old-fashioned!
Where do fonts come from? No one knows for sure but Font Bureau's Cyrus Highsmith has been looking into it. His findings are illustrated above.
