Working alongside legendary type designers Baskerville and Fournier, German-born punchcutter Johann Fleischman pushed beyond the frontiers of his time, cutting active typefaces famous worldwide for their “sparkle.”
Looking back over Fleischman's work, type designer Christian Schwartz focused on Fleischman’s exuberant angularity, carrying it through all weights of his Farnham™ font family. At first glance, the Farnham design seems deceptively simple. But on closer inspection, unique characteristics, such as bracketed serifs and thick stems and spines, set it apart from other classically-designed typefaces.
Included among the 31 weights, ranging from light to black and spread accross both Display and Text families, the Farnham font family also includes swash, OSF and small cap versions. The variety of coverage it provides means that labeling this font super family as versatile would be a supreme understatement.
