ITC Wisteria™ font family


Designed by Michael Stacey in 1995
Wisteria was designed by Michael Stacey and appeared in the ITC library in 1995. It is a robust script font with doubled strokes which look as though they were written with a broad split pen tip. The figures are both energetic and rich in contrast. Such typefaces became popular in the 1930s and were distinguished by the informal sketchiness atypical of calligraphic alphabets. Wisteria has both the grace of a calligraphy font as well as the brusqueness caused by its sharp-edged stroke endings. This contrast makes the overall image interesting and lively. Wisteria is best used for headlines and short texts in point sizes of 14 and larger.

Fractions

Tag: frac

Function: Replaces figures separated by a slash with 'common' (diagonal) fractions. The user enters 3/4 in a recipe and gets the threequarters fraction.

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.

Ordinals

Tag: ordn

Function: Replaces default alphabetic glyphs with the corresponding ordinal forms for use after figures. One exception to the follows-a-figure rule is the numero character (U+2116), which is actually a ligature substitution, but is best accessed through this feature. The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).

Superscript

Tag: sups

Function: Replaces lining or oldstyle figures with superior figures (primarily for footnote indication), and replaces lowercase letters with superior letters (primarily for abbreviated French titles). The application can use this feature to automatically access the superior figures (more legible than scaled figures) for footnotes, or the user can apply it to Mssr to get the classic form.
