Anyone with a love of typography will doubtless be interested to learn that a new typeface is now available through Linotype – Rabenau, a well structured font family available in 16 carefully coordinated styles. Rabenau’s warm personality make it perfect for setting text, but it is just as happy in headlines and display formats. The experienced graphic designer Axel Bertram, who has been producing fonts for the past 30 years, has provided Rabenau with a wealth of different ligatures. The arcs used to create the ligatures st, ck and ct give the font an individual character.
Go to Linotype.com for an extensive article on Rabenau with many examples of applications – you will find it well worth a look!
