Note de l'auteur
Two fonts in one: a classic-modern sans serif appearing in two forms – "standard" and a "stylistic alternate" with uncial script-orientated characters which give the font a completely different "look."

The idea for one of the very first ingoFonts, the sans serif "Faber Eins & Zwei," originated in 1996. This typeface gained popularity over the years, especially in Anglo-Saxon countries. A lot has changed since then – not just in font technology. In 2010 it was time for a basic revision of this attractive font, and time to bring it up to date with current font technology.
A uniqueness of Faber Sans Pro is that it is actually composed of two fonts. The "basic typeface" is a sans serif in the classic-modern style of type creations of the early 20th century – godfathered by Futura from Paul Renner and Gill Sans from Eric Gill. The Roman Capitalis provided the model for the classically proportioned capital letters and the harmonic shapes of the humanistic minuscule for the lower case characters. And so a font with pleasant rhythmic proportions was created and is extremely comfortable to read, especially in large amounts of text; but, it is also reader-friendly under adverse typographic conditions on the monitor.

A "second" typeface with its own personal character resulted as stylistic alternates were designed for the letters a e f g l t u in accordance with the uncial scripts of the late antiquity or rather the early Middle Ages. And the r is given a playful point in the stylistic alternates. Modern OpenType technology makes it possible to combine the previously separate typefaces into one font. The stylistic alternate can be accessed via the OpenType-Functions »Discretionary Ligatures« or also » Stylistic Alternates« (and of course the glyph panel).   Plus...
