Rusticana™ font family


Designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1993
Like Herculanum and Pompeijana , Rusticana™ is one of Adrian Frutiger's contributions to the "Type Before Gutenberg" series. Linotype invited accomplished designers and calligraphers to create new interpretations of scripts from the centuries before Gutenberg's revolutionary invention. Rusticana's historical roots go back to the Roman Capitalis; the engraved, all-cap writing of ancient Rome that reached its peak in the first century. From this style evolved other Roman forms, and this one was particularly good for text on bronze, as opposed to stone. With its chiseled and playfully geometric letterforms, Rusticana has an earthy, artisan-like appearance. Use it for display typography in magazines, invitations, and advertising. Rusticana also has a companion set of ornamental borders."

Function: This is a dual-function feature, which uses two input methods to give the user access to ornament glyphs (e.g. fleurons, dingbats and border elements) in the font. One method replaces the bullet character with a selection from the full set of available ornaments; the other replaces specific "lower ASCII" characters with ornaments assigned to them. The first approach supports the general or browsing user; the second supports the power user. The user inputs qwwwwwwwwwe to form the top of a flourished box in Adobe Caslon, or inputs the bullet character, then chooses the thistle dingbat.
