and Ghiberti are three all-capital titling faces
developed from original manuscript and inscriptional research in Florence.
Beata is a delicate, attenuated design with elegant proportions, modeled on the
fifteenth-century inscription by Bernardo Rossellino for the Tomb of Beata Villana in
Santa Maria Novella, in Florence. The font, consisting of caps and small caps, was
designed by Garrett Boge and Paul Shaw in 1997.
Donatello is a classically proportioned design with subtly tapered strokes,
inspired by the lettering on the fifteenth century cantoria by Luca della Robbia in the
Museum of the Duomo, in Florence. The design, consisting of caps and small caps, also
includes Donatello Alternates -- a compatible set of wider characters. It was designed by
Paul Shaw and Garrett Boge in 1997.
Ghiberti is a contemporary interpretation of the bold Florentine lettering style
used with marble inlaid and bronze cast inscriptions of the fourteenth and fifteenth
centuries. The font, consisting of caps and small caps, was designed by Paul Shaw and
Garrett Boge in 1997.
