Sloop poster

The original Sloop poster designed to promote the release of this popular script family.

Sloop offers the adventurous typographer wide choices of variant forms in three weights of a classically elegant script. Richard Lipton suggests setting lowercase text in Sloop One or Two, capitals in One or Three, with judicious emphasis using alternate ascenders and descenders from Three, capitals from Two. Lipton designed Sloop from the rich variety of styles offered by the late Newport calligrapher Raphael Boguslav.
