The name "Bonsai" seemed appropriate for two reasons: the face's source of inspiration -- some top-heavy type I found in an old handbook on bonsai from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden -- and its characters' resemblance, however vague, to the ancient miniature trees of Japan. When used in text blocks, Bonsai accurately replicates the look of a letterpress job struck with overused lead type. The face works well at either small point sizes or in display situations. Bonsai has two styles, a roman and a true italic; both have full character sets. The OpenType release adds true small caps, old-style and lining figures, numerous ligatures, and Central/Eastern European alphabets.
