Wiesbaden Swing™ font family


Designed by Rosemarie Kloos-Rau in 1992/1997
German designer Rosemarie Kloos-Rau created Wiesbaden Swing™ in 1992 for Linotype. This light, informal typeface is based on her own handwriting, and the strokes have a feeling of spontaneity and energetic flair. Characters like the D, O, W, g, n and y really do swing with unbridled confidence and joy. Kloos-Rau says about her typeface: From the experience with my design company I recognized the need for fonts with personality. Wiesbaden Swing is my contemporary contribution to the field of calligraphy, a headline font which offers a fresh and unconventional approach to typography." This family has both regular and bold weights, a Cyrillic version, and a set of Dingbats. The Dingbats are light-hearted and zippy symbols for holidays, children's products, menus, and more. Wiesbaden Swing will add zest to packaging, catalogs, menus, websites, greeting cards, and magazine layouts. It mixes well with sans-serif fonts like Frutiger, Univers, or Helvetica - such combinations make lively and modern-looking typographic statements. This face is part of the value pack Calligraphy for Print 1"

Standard Ligatures

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.

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).
