About Between The Lines BF Font Family
The famous Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudí, used to say “there are no straight lines or sharp corners in nature…”
However, with Between The Lines that’s exactly what you’ll find: straight lines, parallel and perpendicular, all in a glorious display of Art Deco style. Here the verticals and horizontals dominate while the diagonals “sit this one out”.
Curvilinear lines also run free here: they serve as refreshing counterpoints to prominent straights. These forms suggest a somewhat expressive script-like characteristic, (especially in lowercase) wherever the font’s many initials, terminals and contextual alternates are employed.
Between The Lines offers many options for alternate letterforms (ligatures, stylistic alternates, contextual alternates, etc.). When these OpenType features are used judiciously and selectively, your typography will be greatly heightened.
You’ll find BTL right at home in a number of environments: music album covers, snack food packaging, magazine headlines, cosmetics, signage and more.
PLEASE NOTE: due to its very tall ascenders, Between The Lines benefits from generous leading (line spacing). Multilingual support included.

About Bomparte's Fonts
Bomparte’s Fonts, is a modest type foundry that was launched in 2006 by type designer John Bomparte, at the urging and encouragement of his friend and colleague Bob Alonso (BA Graphics).
John’s love and passion for letters began while in art college, and in the middle of studies in typography. His eyes were suddenly awakened to the rich diversity of various lettering styles. He would sometimes stare for hours on end, at the different typestyles shown in such dry-transfer lettering catalogs as Letraset® and Zipatone®. To John, this was “eye candy”!
It wasn’t long after that he discovered he’d been blessed with the ability to remember and identify the many typefaces to be found everywhere, from supermarket aisles to bookstore shelves.
Later on, John’s experience in type design blossomed at the legendary Photo-Lettering, Inc. where he was assistant to renowned type designer, Ed Benguiat. Working in such an environment also offered him the unique opportunity to be surrounded by such other great type designers as Tony Stan, Vic Caruso, Vincent Pacella.
However, with the emergence of the new computer technologies, the once photogenic letter inevitably had to go digital. So John embraced this new reality, as much of what used to be done laboriously by hand, could now be done in a fraction of the time.
Bomparte’s Fonts endeavors continually to offer an eclectic array of high-quality fonts. These range from experimental to retro-inspired. Most are original designs, while a few are updated revivals.
In addition to producing fonts for his own type foundry, John Bomparte also digitizes the type designs of Harry Warren (Breauhare).
