ABOUT







Alfred R. Bosco

Designer (b. 1901, Neapel) of the upright script Romany (ATF, 1934).

Mac McGrew: Romany is a simple monotone script, designed by Alfred R. Bosco for ATF about 1934. It is vertical, rather wide, and characters don't quite connect. There is an alternate e as shown, also an alternate A which is similar to the lowercase form. The F has no crossbar and could be taken for a T except by context. Compare Keynote, Brody, Repro Script.

Romany is available from Dan Solo as Romany Script. Also available in a major extension as Apricot (2005) by Rebecca Alaccari at Canada Type. And also done by Terrance Weinzierl (Ascender Type, 2009) as Romany.
