Oz Handicraft BT: an unusually narrow script font, now expanded into a family
Inspired by an unpublished manuscript from the great font designer Oswald Bruce Cooper (Cooper Black™), George Ryan designed the first version of Oz Handicraft™ BT at the end of the 1980s. The narrow but legible sans serif with a handwritten flair is now available in an expanded version with eight styles. The typeface is ideal for text, for example, as well as packaging design or posters.
After the recent expansion, Oz Handicraft BT is now available in four weights, Light, Regular, Semibold and Bold. Each weight also includes a wide version in which the character width (although still condensed) is much wider.
The character options are unusually good for a script font. Apart from various number sets, ligatures and some alternative characters, the Greek and Cyrillic alphabets are also included.
The well-equipped and significantly expanded Oz Handicraft BT has flexible and diverse potential for use. Use these easily legible characters to add a personal touch to your designs. Oz Handicraft BT is also ideal for children’s books or comics. The unique, lively character of the font works particularly well in the larger sizes (on posters or packaging designs, for example).
