For more than a decade, the Readability Series of typefaces has been part of Font Bureau’s commitment to the needs of our clients and a response to emerging trends and print technologies. Now, with another wave of technological change and evolving trends, not just in print media, but also online typography and mobile web use, it makes sense for the typefaces of the Readability Series to migrate to our Retail Library for the same licensing options and affordable price.
From Readability to Retail
The new Retail versions are not substantially changed from the original versions in the Readability Library, and character sets may vary between families; but we’ve taken advantage of the OpenType format to merge small capitals and alternate figure styles and improve access to stylistic alternates, where applicable.
In cases where an original text series was graded, the Retail version represents what we consider to be the standard, multi-purpose grade. (For those customers who still require multiple grades for print media, the original Readability fonts are still available for license. Please contact us directly for ordering information.)
In the weeks to come, we will be in the process of migrating the Readability Series to our Retail Library. These typeface families include:
- Benton Modern Text <W>
- Bureau Roman
- Miller Daily
- Miller Headline <W>
- Poynter Gothic Text
- Poynter Oldstyle Display
- Poynter Oldstyle Text <W>
- Zócalo Text
<W> = Also available as web fonts on Webtype.
If you don’t see the Readability typeface you’re looking for available online yet, or don’t see what you need, give us a call at 617-423-8770 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can still offer you the new Retail licensing options and prices.
