New Typeface for the Map-Minded

surveyor_125For those contemplating a project designed to inspire a bit of wanderlust in its audience, type foundry Hoefler & Co. would like to draw you a little map to its latest offering: Surveyor.

(Or it may simply cool its heels asking for directions – up to you, really.)

Here are the particulars:

  • Three optical sizes: Text (body copy), Display (headlines) and Fine (for larger sizes).
  • Five weights, each outfitted with both Roman and italic small caps, swash caps and swash small caps.
  • In its Text size, Surveyor features tabular figures, fractions and symbols.

Surveyor is yours for $199; where it leads you is completely up to you.
