Faust is a soft-serif font family created by Steve Jackaman (ITF) in 1993 exclusively for the Red Rooster Collection. It was inspired by “Faust Antiqua,” which was designed by German designer Albert Kapr for Typoart in 1959. “Faust Antiqua’s” original design only included a roman and italic weight; Jackaman built four additional weights to flesh out the family.
Faust’s slightly geometric, sloped curves evoke a Victorian or Baroque look. The caps are wide and lower than the ascenders, and there is some squaring up of the round letters.
