Bona Nova is a serif font family, a digitisation project of Bona typeface designed in 1971 by Andrzej Heidrich, the creator of Polish banknotes. Our concept, besides giving it a digital form, was to expand the character set, design the small caps, alternates and opentype functions for the typeface. Together with the original author we created two new versions – Regular and Bold to give the family a form of a classical triad.
Bona Nova font family is distributed under Open Font license. In 2019 Bona Nova was extended with new scripts: Cyrillic’s, IPA, Greek, Vietnamese & Arabic.
