Our latest release is an elegant family from our master of the calligraphic script, Richard Lipton. With typefaces like Avalon, Sloop and Tangier, Lipton continually transforms the elegance of pen-on-paper into beautiful, functional fonts.
Lipton has long been fascinated by the work of Friedrich Neugebauer and Martin Wilke, modern calligraphers whose square-edged pen updated 16th-century styles. Savanna Script is an ode to these pioneers, a very condensed hand that dances with a rapid yet effortless energy.
Savanna’s unique capitals are narrow and taller than the lowercase, imparting words with a towering grace. Whenever there isn’t ample room to stretch out, Savanna offers two alternate sets of caps at a middle and low height. These, along with the three weights, give the family a versatility that is uncommon in formal scripts. Also, in what has become a Lipton tradition, there are a variety of alternates available to fit the space and mood.
Savanna Script is available for desktop and web.
3 Styles: Regular, Bold and Black.
Savanna Script is available as OpenType fonts with alternate caps and swash & stylistic alternates.
Savanna Script is also available for online use with @font-face through the Webtype hosted font service.
