The Chicago Manual of Style and FF Tisa: Print Edition

Last week we showed you The Chicago Manual of Style Online, which uses FF Tisa Web throughout. We like what they’ve done so much that we had to pick up the ol’ bound and printed copy of their 16th Edition. As you might imagine, the book is entirely set in FF Tisa (OpenType). The designers of the book over at The University of Chicago Press made full use of the typeface: the range of widths, small caps, and figure variants all contribute to an incredibly clear and aesthetically pleasing design.

The 15th Edition of The Chicago Manual of Style, coincidentally or not, also featured a FontFont stalwart: FF Scala and FF Scala Sans. The 15th Edition’s vibrant orange was used as an accent on the soft blue cover of the 16th Edition.
