History

Austrian designer Viktor Solt-Bittner created the 1998 Adobe® Original typeface, Voluta Script, for use in a guide to the Austrian Gallery at Castle Belvedere. A volute (Latin “voluta”) is a spiral or scroll-shaped ornament used in the Baroque architecture of Castle Belvedere, similar to the swashes in this typeface. The castle was the historic residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy, one of the great military commanders of the 18th century and a prominent figure in Austrian history. When asked to create a typeface based on the calligraphy of the period to illustrate Eugene’s epic, Solt-Bittner turned for inspiration to Kurrent writing, a cursive blackletter style. Solt-Bittner created a hybrid style that embodies the rhythm and basic forms of its ancestors with large capitals, dark vertical strokes, and flourished beginning and ending characters. Voluta Script allows designers to evoke the Baroque era or to lend a hint of majestic grace to contemporary typesetting.

Menu Names And Style Linking

The fonts in this family have no style links: none are a bold or italic variant of another.

You should note that selecting a style option such as bold or italic with any of these faces 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.
