About Rebekah Font Family
Rebekah Pro is a revival of ATF’s Piranesi family, the regular being designed by Willard Sniffin, and the remaining weights designed by Morris Fuller Benton.
Tom Rickner first revived Benton’s Italic for use in his wedding invitations for his marriage to Rebekah Zapf in 2006. He completed the character set in 2009.
Rebekah Pro captures the elegance and distinction of the original. Tom carefully studied samples from 1930s American Type Founders catalogues and created a digital version with meticulous care. While considered an informal script because its letterforms do not connect, Rebekah Pro has graceful strokes and a truly elegant appearance. Tom created a variety of typographic enhancements not found in the original Piranesi italic font.
These OpenType typographic features offer a distinguishing touch to everything from invitations and announcements to greeting cards and advertisements. Rebekah Pro contains the Latin 1 character set and the following OpenType typographic features: Swashes, Small Capitals, Ligatures, Alternates, Oldstyle Figures, Proportional Lining Figures, Tabular Lining Figures and Ornaments.

In the early days of mobile devices and game consoles, few people had yet to fathom coming importance of typeface readability on such platforms. Ascender made its mark during this era by working closely with software developers and device makers to create many of the Windows Core Fonts and type for the Xbox 360 and Android phone.
The Ascender library was formed by a team of typographic experts whose focus was set on technical innovation in the field. Anyone who has ever written a high-school essay has likely used an Ascender typeface: the library developed some of the world’s most-used typefaces such as the Arial, Times New Roman, Tahoma and Verdana designs, and many other fonts that Microsoft includes in Windows and Office. It was in 2007 though, that the library’s designers made enormous strides towards the improvement of on-screen user interfaces with the release of the Droid Sans typeface family. This font was designed to be comfortably read in virtually any onscreen environment.
This library is made up of original and revival typefaces steeped with artistic distinction and technical sophistication. Ascender is a typeface library that was founded with the goal of enhancing the typographic choices for creative professionals everywhere.
