About Arturo Font Family
Arturo is a brand new font family drawn from the original inspiration of an old alphabet in one of
's Dover Clip Art books. It has moved far away from those raw roots, however. Every character has been redrawn. For example, I had a light version that I never could get working. Arturo is based on that light style and called Arturo Book.
The name comes from a good friend of mine in El Paso. He was the guinea pig upon whom I foisted off the beginnings of this style so many years ago. I did several marketing pieces for him using the raw drawings. I figured that he deserved to have the family named after him, at the very least.
This is a normal font family for me in that it has caps, lowercase, small caps with the appropriate figures for each case. This font has all the OpenType features in the set for 2009. There are several ligatures for your fun and enjoyment: bb gg ff fi fl ffi ffl ffy fj ft tt ty Wh Th and more. Like all of my fonts, there are: caps, lowercase, small caps, proportional lining figures, proportional oldstyle figures, & small cap figures, plus numerators, denominators, superiors, inferiors, and a complete set of ordinals 1st through infinity.
About Hackberry Font Foundry
The Hackberry Font Foundry was founded in the 1998 to sell the fonts David Bergsland designed to be used in his digital publishing training books.
The goal of David’s fonts is to add a hand-drawn edge to them. In this age of increasing technological “slickness” he purposely loosens the structure and adds “air” to the glyphs with breaks.
All fonts are designed as OpenType Pro fonts with special production features. Almost all of the fonts have oldstyle numbers as well as small cap figures, plus small caps, discretionary ligatures & special dingbats.
They really shine in book production.
The production families have contrasting serif and sans serif families both using the same vertical font metrics—for run-in heads and the like.
At present he mainly writes and designs books.
