The british designer Rosemary Sassoon created the fonts , , , and in 1995.
Sassoon was designed in the style of typefaces found in schoolbooks in the early 20th century. The font exhibits a harmony between the space within and outside of the letters. The forms have soft, round forms which give text an almost ornamental character. This flexible font can be used for headlines or text, in small or large point sizes.
Sassoon is part of the Linotype Library.
