About Bartosh Font Family

Bartosh is the American short form for Bartholomew. Although I chose this font name because of its sound and its short conciseness, I also liked the fact that Bartholomew had been one of the 12 apostles who had worked in India and Iran and the idea that his spirit could be the inspiration for my work.Bartosh was designed for display on the screen: the large x-height and the clear, open shapes facilitate readability. As a result, it develops a strong expression of character and makes it ideal for headings or highlighting individual text passages – it is ideal for captions of any kind. In each of the six weights, it unfolds its own and special charm. The extra-bold version is particularly noteworthy because fonts in this stroke width are rare and it is precisely these extreme bolds that give them a special graphic appeal.For all fonts there are matching italics in a well-developed set of 677 characters. In addition, it is possible to change the digits and currency characters from proportional to tabular or OldStyle via the OpenType feature, and small caps are also available in all fonts.

About jpFonts

Rosenfeld, Schnebel, Willrodt – they can't let go of the fonts. The congenial trio has been designing, developing, producing and distributing digital fonts together for around 40 years. All three have acquired their first spores from URW. Peter Karow, one of the founders of URW, developed the first version of the IKARUS Font Editor in 1975 and continuously expanded and refined it until 1995. URW is history, but jpFonts sets up where URW ended. Jürgen Willrodt is one of the world's leading experts in font technology and has played a major role in the development of the IKARUS system. In addition to his own Font Library, Volker Schnebel has designed countless corporate type projects and implemented them together with Peter Rosenfeld. Rosenfeld has worked very closely with Karow for over a decade and, in addition to setting up the URW Library, has led the worldwide distribution of fonts and software.jpFonts wants to work primarily customer-oriented, i.e. we want to offer optimal font support for customers, regularly release new and contemporary (Variable) fonts.
