What is the Bossa Nova® font?

Bossa Nova is intimate, soft and controlled. Bossa Nova is syncopated rhythms and understated emotion. Capture its essence with the typeface of the same name, based on hand lettering by an uncredited scribe in a 1946 copybook. MvB Design commissioned Holly Goldsmith of Small Cap Graphics to complete Bossa Nova’s character set and to modify the characters for digital type. The sensuous curves and unique lines grab attention at display sizes, yet it remains remarkably readable in short copy blocks. Bossa Nova is perfect for design concepts based on music, travel, or romance.
