Linotype Besque™ font family

Designed by Rachel Ellaway in 1999
Linotype Besque, from English designer Rachel Ellaway, is part of the TakeType Library, chosen from the entries of the 1999 International Digital Type Design Contest for inclusion on the TakeType 3 CD. A generous typeface in which the circle, or better, the o, is without a doubt the dominant element. Almost all figures were constructed from the form of the o. The letters are therefore almost without exception convex and make an open, airy and dynamic impression. The wedges at the ends of some figures give the typeface a Celtic-Irish feel. Because of a lower grade of legibility, Linotype Besque should be used exclusively for headlines in larger point sizes.
