Filmotype Western font
Filmotype Western font is a project aimed at reviving a legend. It was first released in 1955 and was inspired by a French font of 1880’s that became hugely popular and widely used in advertisements, circus posters and broadsides at the end of the 19th century. It was an instant success in the 1960’s too when it become familiar to almost anybody due to its usage in films.
Now, the American type designer Charles Gibbons decided to expand Filmotype Western font with Greek and Cyrillic. After spending much time in researching the letterforms and especially to the linguistic details, he presents us with a font that provides the readers with appropriate forms for any language supported. And it is exactly the vast language support that is the main feature of this typeface family. Over 90 languages are supported, including Greek and Russian with close attention paid to the localized forms for setting Turkish, Polish, Romanian, Bulgarian and Serbian. Apart from that the original Filmotype Western font is enriched with many contemporary OpenType features – automatic fractions, ordinals, language-specific stylistic alternates, full scientific superiors and inferiors and ligatures.
