¶ ALBERTAN ITALIC stands as a proud ancillary to its roman counterpart. The entire Albertan family is representative of the same even quality. Although Albertan is distinctly modern it offers hospitality for traditional book designers.
The series has found itself extensively used by the British Columbia Tourist Bureau, numerous magazines from the west to the east coast of North America and now I find Albertan in frequent use by Finnish book publishers.
ALBERTAN ITALIC HISTORY
¶ ALBERTAN ITALIC was drawn in 1985 to accompany the Roman which had been made as a metal type by the designer, Jim Rimmer. It has been designed to a narrow set width and has a very slight incline. The capitals have been taken from the Roman face, and have been condensed about 10 percent to blend with the lower case forms. The face has a full set of ligatures, and in addition there has been designed, a font of Italic Small Capitals.
