FF Bau: Now available in OpenType and Web formats

Next in our series of cool font specimen PDF callouts comes FF Bau. Designed by Christian Schwartz in 2002, FF Bau is based on Schelter & Giesecke’s Grotesk, an early ancestor of Helvetica. In the most recent Fontfont update, FF Bau was rereleased in the following versions:

OpenType | Pro | Office | Office Pro | Web | Web Pro

FontFont has posted a very cool “Stylistic Set Pocket Guide”, detailing the new OpenType features in FF Bau OT. Among them are a number of alternate glyphs, figure variants, and Central European language support (in the Pro versions). You can also read more about FF Bau, and the rest of the FontFont 54 release, over at FontShop Benelux’s Unzipped.
