HistoryFairfield is a fifty-year-old typeface that has had a recent facelift. Rudolph Ruzicka, artist and book illustrator, designed light and medium weights of Fairfield for Linotype in 1940 and 1949, respectively. For Fairfields 1991 release as an electronic typeface, designer Alex Kaczun added bold and heavy weights. With its straight, unbracketed serifs and abrupt contrast between thin and thick strokes, Fairfield harks back to the modern typefaces of Bodoni and Didot, but has a distinctly twentieth-century look. Fairfield is a fine text face, both for books and shorter texts. Kaczun added small capitals and old style figures, swash capitals, and a set of caption typefaces (sloped roman style) that were inspired by Matthew Carter's extensions to Oldstyle 7 for National Geographic magazine.
Menu Names And Style Linking
In many Windows® applications, instead of every font appearing on the menu, fonts are grouped into style-linked sets, and only the name of the base style font for a set is shown in the menu. The italic and the bold weight fonts of the set (if any) are not shown in the font menu, but can still be accessed by selecting the base style font, and then using the italic and bold style buttons. In this family, such programs will show only the following base style font names in the menu:
Fairfield LT Std Caption Heavy
Fairfield LT Std Caption Light
Fairfield LT Std Caption Medium
Fairfield LT Std Heavy
Fairfield LT Std Light
Fairfield LT Std Medium
The other fonts in this family must be selected by choosing a menu name and then a style option following the guide below.
|Menu Name||plus Style Option...||selects this font|
|Fairfield LT Std Caption Heavy||[none]||Fairfield LT Std 85 Heavy Caption|
|Fairfield LT Std Caption Light||[none]||Fairfield LT Std 45 Light Caption|
|Fairfield LT Std Caption Medium||[none]||Fairfield LT Std 55 Medium Caption|
|Fairfield LT Std Caption Medium||Bold||Fairfield LT Std 75 Bold Caption|
|Fairfield LT Std Heavy||[none]||Fairfield LT Std 85 Heavy|
|Fairfield LT Std Heavy||Italic||Fairfield LT Std 86 Heavy Italic|
|Fairfield LT Std Light||[none]||Fairfield LT Std 45 Light|
|Fairfield LT Std Light||Italic||Fairfield LT Std 46 Light Italic|
|Fairfield LT Std Medium||[none]||Fairfield LT Std 55 Medium|
|Fairfield LT Std Medium||Italic||Fairfield LT Std 56 Medium Italic|
|Fairfield LT Std Medium||Bold||Fairfield LT Std 75 Bold|
|Fairfield LT Std Medium||Bold, Italic||Fairfield LT Std 76 Bold Italic|
On the Mac OS operating system, although each font appears as a separate entry on the font menu, users may also select fonts by means of style links. Selecting a base style font and then using the style links (as described above for Windows applications) enhances cross-platform document compatibility with many applications, such as Microsoft Word and Adobe® PageMaker® software, although it is unnecessary with more sophisticated Adobe applications such as recent versions of Illustrator®, Photoshop® or InDesign® software.
One should not, however, select a base font which has no style-linked variant, and then use the bold or italic styling button. Doing so will either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
