v.1.1, Copyright (c) 19982002 TypeArt(R) Foundry Inc. All Rights Reserved. This TypeArt(R) font was designed by Lloyd Springer. "TypeArt" is a registered trademark of the TypeArt Foundry Inc. "Xheighter" is a trademark of the TypeArt Foundry Inc.
The Xheighter Condensed™ fonts are companion fonts to our Xheighter™ family. As there are certain character differences, including square punctuation, we opted to market it as a separate family.
WHAT IS IT?
While Xheighter Condensed™ is largely a condensed version of our Xheighter™ family, numerous characters have been further modified to match the strokes of a similar typeface that was common in the 1960s and 70s. This design is ideal for newspaper headlines and advertisements where the type is intended to be extremely bold. The bold and bold italic fonts included in this set are actually the same weight as the original Xheighter™ fonts, but have had the same stroke modifcations made to them so that they match the characters in the regular versions.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN XHEIGHTER CONDENSED™ BOLD and XHEIGHTER™ REGULAR
Aside from assorted changes in some character outlines, one of the significant differences is the use of square dots on the i and j, diersis, period, comma, colon and semi-colon.
How the hell do you pronounce "Xheighter"? It sounds like the name of a German type designer, huh? Actually it is pronounced "excite her" or "x-height-er". The reason this name was chosen is actually on account of its unusually high x-height of this font. The lowercase letters are almost the same height as the uppercase letters, so we thought that Xheigher™ would be an interesting name for the font... especially because there are so many neat puns you can make with the name:
This font Xheights me! This type is Xheighting!
No one gets bored with Xheighter!
Ordering this font is a sure cause for Xheightment!
FULL CHARACTER SET
Each font in the Xheighter Condensed™ family has a full character set of 232+ letterforms, with all characters designed in the style of the font.
