Previously part of our Readability Series, Quiosco is now part of our Retail library and available for licensing and download.
With Quiosco, Cyrus Highsmith continues an examination of themes and possibilities which he first explored in Prensa, inspired by the work of W. A. Dwiggins — specifically a dynamic tension between inner and outer contours. However, the crackling, electrical energy of Prensa here gives way to a more fluid, mercurial muscularity in Quiosco.
While initially conceived for newspaper text, Quiosco has also found gainful employment in a variety of magazines over the years — Sports Illustrated, TV Guide, Outside, and The Hollywood Reporter, to name-drop just a few.
The new Quiosco premium fonts now include the FB Extended Latin character set, which covers all major languages and dialects written with the Latin alphabet, plus a host of professional OpenType layout features including small caps, both lining and oldstyle figures (plus tabular forms of each), and fractions, superiors, and inferiors.
6 Styles: Regular, Italic, Semibold, Semibold Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic.
Quiosco is provided as premium OpenType fonts with a full set of professional OT layout features and extended language support.
Quiosco was originally part of Font Bureau’s Readability Series, with four different grades for a range of press environments. These original grades are also available at retail pricing for those situations where fine control is required. If you require a specific grade or all grades, please call or e-mail us with your inquiry.
