Designed by Alejandro Paul, Buffet Script is a script font released by Sudtipos.

Buffet Script is based upon fantastic calligraphy by Alf Becker, arguably the best American sign lettering artist of all time.

The Alf Becker series of nameless alphabets released by Sign of the Times magazine in 1941 has drawn in letter digitizers for a few years now, so it's truly a marvel that a few of those alphabets are still in the non-digital world. It is reasonable, though, that the basis for Buffet Script was not digitally attempted up until now. The page presenting this alphabet shows a jungle of letters encountering each others and swashes linking. The massive amount of work associated with digitizing such lettering, where scanning is no place near being an alternative, is rather apparent at a mere glance. If anyone was going to devote this particular alphabet to a digital form, it would have to be redrawn stroke by stroke and curve by curve on the computer.

And don't we enjoy a difficulty! But seriously, the challenge was not the primary destination. In a method, the Becker method to lettering is up until now from digital that the imagination is practically forced to exercise possibilities and letter mixes to resolve issues presented by the little showings in that magazine. After a few imaginative visualizations, the digital potential ends up being clear in the mind, and the eye and hand follow. The outcome with Whomp (another Alf Becker-inspired work) was an enormous font with a great deal of alternates and ligatures. With Buffet Script the imaginative procedure was no various, however the outcome especially shines here, since this is a few of the most interesting streaming calligraphy ever seen. Calligraphy is where the accountability of all the little extra touches, such as alternates and swashes and ligatures, is raised to a higher level than in the majority of other type categories.

Buffet Script's OpenType programs consists of discretionary ligatures, stylistic and contextual alternates, communicating with each other to enable the composition of just the best word or sentence. This typeface is best utilized where lush elegance is among the design's requirements.
