Banjo Playbill

Retro typeface from

the Photo-Lettering collection

Photo-Lettering's Banjo Playbill is a typeface with distinctive "baloon serifs". The alphabet was originally designed by Dave West. The font was carefully adjusted for the Photo-Lettering digital service; besides digital interpretation of the original lettershapes the task also included the creation of many original forms which were not drawn when typeface was manufactured for the photo typesetting process. Due to it's unconventional shapes and relatively large serifs many unique ligatures had to be created as well. The typeface fully supports European languages that use Latin script.

Banjo Playbill is available via Photo-Lettering service.
