New release: FF51
BERLIN, GERMANY, December 2009 – FSI FontShop International announced the latest additions to its award-winning FontFont® typeface library.
The new FontFonts
Xavier Dupré’s FF Yoga family is a type system conceived to work for newspapers and magazines thanks to its strong personality and good legibility. The Serif weights with their sturdy serifs are a good choice for body text, but they also serve as an original headline face with their subtly chiseled counters inspired by blackletters. FF Yoga mixes the harshness of blackletters with the balanced rhythm and round shapes of the Garalde typefaces. FF Yoga Sans is a contemporary alternative to Gill Sans and a sober companion to Yoga Serif.
FF Mister K Dingbats are the newcomers to Julia Sysmäläinen’s FF Mister K family, a script typeface based on Franz Kafka’s manuscripts. It started with Finnish illustrator Oili Kokkonen creating some pretty funny cartoon characters using letterforms of FF Mister K Regular. Soon after, the design of almost 600 pictograms was on its way. All are based on glyph parts of the Regular with which they make a very good match.
Latest FontFont Office additions
Besides the CFF (PostScript-flavoured) OpenType FontFonts we are now offering TTF (TrueType-flavoured) OpenType fonts for all those customers who are working with non-OT-savvy applications and therefore can't use the OT layout features such as alternative figures, and Small Caps. The fonts are style-linked, i. e. grouped together under a single item in the font menu. The default figure set is Tabular Figures (TF); Small Caps with Oldstyle Figures (OSF) are separate fonts.
