New Release

Juliana Text

Elegance and economy return to fashion with David Berlow’s revival of Sem Hartz’s Juliana. Originally commissioned in 1952 by Walter Tracy and released by British Linotype & Machinery in 1958, Juliana was (in Hartz’s own words) “simply an attempt to make a rather narrow and space-saving type, as legible as possible.” It was embraced by the British paperback market, finding a home in several Penguin editions.

In 2001, while attending a meeting of the Association of American University Presses, Berlow asked some book designers there “what they wanted that they didn’t have.” The resulting discussion led him to this revival — a classic text face reborn.

2 Styles: Roman + Roman SC, Italic + Italic SC.

Available as full-fledged OpenType fonts with small caps, oldstyle & lining figures, and long-descender variants.

Dyana Weissman Speaks Up

In late January, the popular design blog Speak Up posted an interview with Font Bureau’s Dyana Weissman. In the words of guest editor Christian Palino, “I thought it would be interesting to reach out to one of the younger designers over at the Font Bureau whose name might not be as well known (yet), and get some insights into her process, the industry and all things letter-centric.” Fortunately, for those who missed it, the article is still available in their archives.
