Hoffmann font family

Richard Lipton designed the Hoffmann family from letters drawn and then cut out of paper as free-standing forms by contemporary Michigan lettering artist Lothar Hoffmann. Lipton follows creative development of contemporary lettering forms closely, searching for ideas that will yield type series. He digitized Hoffmann with Font Bureau in 1993, preparing four full weights, each supported by an expert set, plus a titling.

Lining Figures

Tag: lnum

Function: This feature changes selected figures from oldstyle to the default lining form. The user invokes this feature in order to get lining figures, which fit better with all-capital text. Various characters designed to be used with figures may also be covered by this feature. In cases where lining figures are the default form, this feature would undo previous substitutions.

Old Style Figures

Tag: onum

Function: This feature changes selected figures from the default lining style to oldstyle form. The user invokes this feature to get oldstyle figures, which fit better into the flow of normal upper- and lowercase text. Various characters designed to be used with figures may also have oldstyle versions.

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).
