July 3, 2007. Boston
Font Bureau, Inc. is proud to present two new script families for summer, whether you are celebrating a friend’s wedding or a baseball season:
CASEY - a fat-bottomed Script in 3 weigths
Casey, Leslie Cabarga’s latest script, recalls Casey at the Bat, Enerest Lawrence Thayer’s vivid old baseball poem. Once, fat-bottomed scripts like Casey were everywhere but they barely survived as logos for Campbell’s soup, Ford, Coca-Cola and, of course, the Dodgers. In 2000, Emigre’s logo brought one back and popular use was on again. Cabarga’s splendid take on the swinging style restores it to current typographic usage; FB 2003-07
BISCOTTI - an informal script in 2 weights
Biscotti was commissioned in 2004 by Gretchen Smelter and Donna Adjerian for Brides magazine. “We want a typeface that makes the reader feel pretty; it should capture the voice of this happy occasion.” Cyrus Highsmith has prepared a radically simple descendant of the flourished engraved scripts traditionally deemed suitable for such formal occasions, a 21st century typeface that captures the spirit of these classical forms; FB 2007
Biscotti is exclusively available in OpenType format.
