“Buffalo Gals is one of the very first ‘Variable Fonts’, originally made in 1992 for an Apple TrueType GX developer CD. It was intended to push the boundaries on the number of stylistic axes in a font, with 6 axes in total, none of them being weight or width. Based upon wood type of the late 1800’s [i.e. Egyptian Ornamented, William H. Page, 1870], Buffalo Gals enables control over features with names like Cookies, Fringe, Hooves, Concavity and Bracketing. It offers 144 distinct combinations of these attributes, and seemingly infinite intermediate interpolations as well.” — Tom Rickner
