About Columbus® font family

The Columbus font family was designed to celebrate the quincentenary of the voyage from Spanish shores by Christopher Columbus. The roman is based on types used in Spain by Jorge Coci circa 1513, probably originating from Italy and traveling via France. Columbus Italic is derived from a font cut by Robert Granjon circa 1543 and used by Bartolom de Najra in 1548 to print a famous manual by the writing master Juan de Yciar. Columbus has a fresh and lively hand-drawn feel but works well with today's digital systems. An excellent text face, Columbus can also be used for display in advertising, posters, flyers and headlines, where the true elegance and beauty of the letters can be seen.
