Beginning in 1993, Martin Majoor enhanced his elegant serif FF Scala with a sans serif companion, making the family one of the first with a sans/serif pairing. Like the serif, it is its simplicity that makes FF Scala Sans so captivating. It achieves this modern look without resorting to a hi-tech, mechanical pastiche, instead drawing its basic shape from the skeleton of classic Roman serifs. As in FF Scala, oldstyle figures are standard, a rare thing in a sans serif. There is also a collection of FF Scala Hands included in all weights, following in the delightful tradition of printer’s manicules.
FF Scala Sans supports 114 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
