Savanna Script from Font Bureau

Savanna Script

We are pleased to announce Savanna Script, the latest work from Richard Lipton and the Font Bureau. Demonstrated in his earlier typefaces such as Avalon, Sloop, and Tangier, Lipton is a master of transforming the elegance and spontaneity of calligraphy into beautiful, functional fonts. With Savanna he created a very condensed roundhand script that dances with rapid, effortless energy.

For moden web browsers that fully support OpenType font features, Savanna comes with three sets of capitals and variety of alternates and ligatures, allowing it to adapt to the desired space and tone. These, along with the three weights, give the family a versatility that is rare in formal scripts.

Use Savanna Script as an accentuating display face in extra large sizes. It combines well with almost all serif faces such as Poynter Serif RE, Benton Modern, Bulmer, Bell or Whitman. As with all fonts on Webtype, Savanna Script can be tested free of charge for 30 days. For more details, see the Savanna Script webfont page.
