French designer Albert Boton developed FF Tibere as a caps-only titling face for titles and headlines. During the process however he saw the potential for the design to be adapted to function in text too. So he reworked his drawings, focusing on versatility in form. FF Tibere gets its name from the Tiber river in Rome, home to the classical Roman inscriptional lettering that served as inspiration for the typeface – unique in its classical beauty and still the model of many of our Latin letters today. Boton did introduce some changes to the Roman inscriptional letter: widening H, C, M, and A, and taking E, S, and F narrower. FF Tibere’s italic is inspired by Renaissance humanist calligraphy.
