Bona Nova is a digitization 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, the design of small caps, alternates and functions for the OpenType typeface. Together with the original author created the two new versions – Regular and Bold to give the family and the forms of the classical triad. The complete family is distributed under the open font license. It is also accompanied by 3 commercial packs – BONA DISPLAY PACK, BONA SFORZA PACK, BONA TITLE PACK.
