Apricot was developed by Rebecca Alaccari, A. Bosco and published by Canada Type. Apricot consists of 4 styles and family bundle options. p > A. R. Bosco made Romany for ATF in 1934, when there was much need for script key ins advertising and publishing. It was the high times of Speedball lettering, and a casual script in that fashion was naturally really welcome. It became an instant hit and was utilized extensively for an excellent part of the 1930s and 1940s.

Apricot is not only a revival of Bosco's work, but also a major growth of it. It contains really reliable options to the numerous problems provided by the original metal type, which needed to always be tracked too large because of the kinds of a few of its letters. Solving these issues was not a simple task. A comprehensive set of alternates was designed to provide the user the capability to replace some types in certain uses, and a big set of two-, three-, and even four-letter ligatures was included to resolve the awkwardness of some of the more typical letter pairings. The resulting work is rather wonderful, especially for those who like to benefit from OpenType technology.

Apricot is the rarest kind of script in digital type these days, the kind that is upright, round, bold, feminine, and definitely young in look. A birthday cake for a teenage woman can definitely take advantage of these letters. So can greeting cards, family show posters, journal covers, celebration invitations, ladies's shirts, toy product packaging, event literature, and almost anything that needs that special touch of shiny happy youth.

Apricot is readily available in all typical font formats. The Postscript and True Type versions can be found in 4 typefaces, that include one for alternates and two for ligatures along with the primary font. The OpenType version is one font style which contains more than 380 glyphs and all the essential shows for the combinations of OpenType-supporting applications.
