Font of the Week — Americana

by Lissa Eckert

in Font of the Week

Americana was designed by Richard Isbell in 1965 to honor our country’s upcoming bicentennial. With extremely high x-heights, triangular serifs, and airy spacing, Americana is perfect for advertising. Isbell’s creation of such a versatile typeface means Americana works great for not only large print needs, but small as well.
