New Vista

I often feel like a shill for Emigre but they recently came out with a beautiful new typeface that has a tremendous amount of versatility and typographic dignity. It’s called Vista Sans and, to me, it provides a new vista without the “without.”
Vista is apparently based on many of the shop signs found in Sumatra by type designer Xavier Dupre.
In some ways it’s a sweet and more sophisticated combination of Linotype’s commercial Trade Gothic and FontBureau’s overused but fantastically clear-eyed Interstate. The range of odd weights and different kinds of numbers in the set makes this a bit of a must-have, at least on my wish list.
