In 1904 William Starling Burgess, Boston racing sailor, designed his second type. Six years later, now the Wright Brothers’ partner, Starling quit type, returning the drawings to Monotype. Frank Pierpont collected the nameless roman for British Monotype, passing it to Stanley Morison in 1932 for The London Times. Mike Parker found the original superior, and prepared this Starling series for Font Bureau, who found it to be “the right stuff”; FB 2009
Starling is available as full-featured OpenType fonts with small caps and both oldstyle & lining figures.
Among other uses, Starling is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine, Book and Corporate use.
