New Release

Savanna Script

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.

Turnip, Heron & Serge on list of favorites!

We were delighted to learn that several Font Bureau typefaces were included in Typographica’s Favorite Typefaces of 2012: Turnip by David Jonathan Ross and Heron Sans, Heron Serif and Serge by Cyrus Highsmith. In his typeface review, Eben Sorkin hails “Turnip’s distinct, unapologetic voice and engaging readability” as groundbreaking for both “text-size book and editorial use.” Christoph Koeberlin praises Heron as a “versatile and unique workhorse superfamily” with “sports, strength, and dynamics in each of the sans and slab styles”. With Serge, writes Nicole Dotin, Cyrus has created a typeface “with no obvious counterpart” that is a “breath of fresh air.”
