Joann Sfar

"Sfar", created for Uncivilized Books upcoming book, Pascin. Joann Sfar (The Rabbi's Cat, Vampire Loves) is a popular French cartoonist from Europe and Uncivilized Books is bringing his comics to the United States. "Sfar" is an Opentype font with alternate glyphs and discretionary ligatures to best emulate his unique hand lettering.

Custom typefaces (Opentype) designed and refined based on the handlettering of cartoonists for their graphic novels. The typeface allows for easier editing and foreign language translations. Opentype allows for the use of alternate alphabets for a more organic look that comics demand, and extended glyphs for translations.
