One of our latest type posters…

I’d like to use this opportunity to share some recent artwork from Type Development at Adobe Systems. This is a thumbnail of a Kazuraki poster that was designed for an internal Tech Fair that will take place during the coming week. Kazuraki is genuinely proportional Japanese font that is based on the writings of Fujiwara-no-Teika, and designed by Adobe’s own Ryoko Nishizuka. This poster was also designed by the font’s designer.

    The font looks great! How do I buy Kazuraki font? [We are currently performing the necessary steps to make Kazuraki available for sale on our Type Showroom, and we hope to have this done by early next year, possibly sooner.I gave a lecture about Kazuraki for the Japan Society of Northern California on Tuesday evening, and you can get my presentation and the Kazuraki specimen book here: Kazuraki: Adobe Systems’ Groundbreaking New Japanese TypefaceYou may find both to be interesting and helpful. – KL]

    Hello Ken,I was at the presentation for the Japan Society, and was really impressed by this font. Any idea when it will be available? [Kazuraki became available for sale on December 7, 2009 at a price of $35 for a single-user license. Click here to go to the ordering page. – KL]

    I just found out about the amazing Kazuraki OpenType font following a recent discussion on the OpenType mailing list. After finding the font description and this poster. I printed the 800×1200 jpeg version, but the small type is still hard to read at tabloid size.

    I was especially excited about it since I’m currently learning Japanese, so I’d love to see a PDF version of the poster. I know it’s been 2-1/2 years since this post, but can a PDF version be made available?
