Hi there fellow Typophiles!
I am looking for Scala LF but I have never before heard of the term: "LF"
What does LF stand for?
Thanx in advance!
Linig Figures, I would guess (as opposed to oldstyle figures…)
What does it mean as oppose to a regular FF Scala?
The regular FF Scala's numbes are oldstyle figures.
Thanx a million!
Hi Jakob, if you are planning to do a new purchase, maybe you wanna consider the OpenType version of Scala. It contains oldstyle figures aswell as lining figures, in one single font file—along with ligatures, small caps and a whole bunch of other features. Here’s a pdf [220kb] about it.
Hoefler and Frere Jones have a nice explanation as to the purpose of these designs:
