About Seibi Ohkido Font Family

It is a font based on "yose-style characters" used in entertainment during the Edo period for signboards and the rankings of rakugo performers and flyers to attract customers. Kanji in the original yose-style characters is balanced with kana, and is made easier to read by controlling brushstrokes at oblique angles, rising to the right. While the font is arranged in a contemporary style tailored to both horizontal and vertical typesetting, you can still enjoy the essence of handwritten yose-style characters. 江戸時代に使用された演芸文字で落語の看板や番付、客寄せのビラに使用された「寄席文字」をベースにした書体です。寄席文字は舞台芸能で使われる勘亭流と、提灯や半纏に使われた字体の折衷で生まれた文字といわれ、「枠いっぱいに墨たっぷりの太い線でフトコロ(隙間)を埋めて書く= 空席がないように」「右肩上がりに書く= ますます盛況に」と縁起を担いだ装飾文字です。セイビオオキドは、手書きレタリングから引き継がれた寄席文字です。寄席文字本来の漢字とかなのバランスの違いを整え、右肩あがりもおさえて読みやすく、タテヨコでも組みやすく現代風にアレンジしていますが、手書きの寄席文字のような組みができます。

About Nihon Literal

Since its foundation, Nihon Literal has accumulated trust and a successful track record mainly in the production of characters used for the headings of book advertisements by publishers and newspaper companies. Among them, "Seibi Font" is a unique typeface brand created to satisfy a customer's request for a font that does not exist in print and typesetting and cannot be represented with existing characters. We will continue to combine the technologies and know-how that have been cultivated over the years in the development of "Seibi Font" and bring passion to the making of fonts by paying attention to details while foremost thinking about customers who wish to convey their sentiments. 日本リテラルは創業以来、主に出版社や新聞社の書籍広告における見出し用文字の制作に携わりながら、多くの信頼と実績を積み重ねてまいりました。 その中で、活字や写植にない書体、または既成の文字では表現できない書体がほしい、というお客様のご要望に応えて誕生した独自の書体ブランド、それが「セイビフォント」です。 これからも私たちは、セイビフォント開発において長年培ってきた技術とノウハウを結集し、思いを伝えたい人のことを第一に考えながら、細部にまでこだわった書体づくりに情熱を注ぎ続けてまいります。
