Script Font Identification Guide

Part 4- ARTISTIC Category
Calligraphic Lettering (Continued)

These script fonts are most characterized by the strong contrasts in stroke that result from using a chiselled pen-tip. This group ranges from Lombardic, 'Mediaeval', Celtic and uncial styles to rather modern print-like scripts, but the strong expressive pen contrasts mark them all.

Brioso Poster only has Light weight. See Part 6, page 23, or Part 8, page 13, for Poster Italic

Brioso Caption, Text, Subhead & Display also come in Light, Medium, Semibold & Bold weights, each with an Italic. These four showings are all set at the same color and point size to show the relative character width and stroke thickness for comparison.

There is an Italic version of each weight of Brioso Caption, Text, Subhead & Display. Only the Text Italic is shown, because the relationship of the different fonts is like the Romans which are shown above. See Part 6, page23, and Part 8, page 13, to see this compared with Brioso Poster Italic.

Based on 'Privat' by Joachim Siercke. See Swash initials in use below.

Initials A, D, E, F and M were alternate characters in original typeface 'Privat'.
