Agfa Monotype Corp.
announced on Tuesday that they’ve released
20 exclusive fonts and font volumes
Fonts.com. All of them are from the new Laurentian, Fairbank, and Mosquito Formal typeface families.
Laurentian was originally created by designer Rod McDonald for the Canadian magazine Maclean’s. Its family includes regular, semibold and bold weights, with italics for regular and semibold. A set of Laurentian small caps is also available.
Fairbank is a revival of a design first released as a metal font by designer Alfred Fairbank in the early 1930s. It’s complemented by Fairbank Chancery, a calligraphic rendition, as well as typographic extras that include a suite of ornate caps, ligatures, and lowercase swash characters.
Mosquito Formal is a new version of the Mosquito typeface introduced by Agfa Monotype in 2002. The original’s cursive strokes and terminals have been replaced by traditional features. It’s available in three weights with complementary italic designs, in addition to a suite of small caps and old style figures.
All three font families are available in PostScript for the Mac. Individual fonts are US$42. Volume pricing is $151.20 for all Laurentian fonts, $84 for the Fairbank set, and $340.20 for the Mosquito Formal collection.
