Happy New Year from Font Bureau, Inc. To ring in 2007, we are proud to present two new families by Cyrus Highsmith:
ANTENNA - a Sans Serif in 28 styles
The calm and deliberation of Antenna offers further development to the excitement and mobility that we have come to expect from the hand of Cyrus Highsmith. Beyond the tension of his normal line, Highsmith places a new emphasis on the repeat and variation of counter shapes with the spaces between characters.

Font Bureau, Inc. is proud to release Quiosco, an original news text family by Cyrus Highsmith.

Quiosco permits more compact wordspaces with no loss of readability.
Quiosco is the fifth addition to Font Bureau’s Readability Series, a suite of graded ...

October 29th Boston — Font Bureau, Inc. is proud to release Farnham, a transitional family from Christian Schwartz inspired by Johann Fleischman.
In the late 1700’s, Baskerville, Fournier and Fleischman led a dynamic shift in the design of typefaces.

Johann Michael Fleischman was German, master punchcutter at the Enschedé Typefoundry in Haarlem. He used better tools on finer steel to obtain lighter strokes and sharper curves. His type sparkles on the page, mixing vertical and angled stress with a personal approach ...
