Sprig Sans is a geometric, grotesk sans-serif with a friendly demeanor. Sprig Sans is the sans-serif sister of Sprig, a Cheltenham-inspired serif typeface with round, organic letterforms. Sprig Sans retains the most striking features of Sprig and has matching weights and letterform proportions. The result is a grotesk sans-serif that has the flexibility of a classic workhorse sans (she can do it all), with characters and details that feel unique and inspired. Because the sans and the serif were drawn together, they pair harmoniously in any configuration.
As an added bonus and to further link the Sprig sans and serif families, there are a wide number of OpenType features that provide access to special characters like swash caps, ligatures, and alternate glyphs. These special glyphs are rare to find in a more traditional sans family, making them more impactful and fun to use.
Cheltenham, the typeface that inspired Sprig, was the world’s first full-fledged large type family, and the Sprig collection follows in its footsteps. Drawn digitally with a rigorous attention to every detail, the type shines in all sizes and the wide range of weights allow for a wide breadth of expression without leaving the family. All Faire Type typefaces are available as variable fonts, for maximum flexibility and precision typesetting.

By a stricter definition of individuality, and using contending measures of size, Ficus benghalensis, the giant banyan trees of India are the largest trees in the world. In these trees, a network of interconnected stems and branches has grown entirely by vegetative, “branching” propagation. One individual, Thimmamma Marrimanu, in Andhra Pradesh, covers 19,107 square metres, making it the largest single tree by two-dimensional canopy coverage area. This tree is also the world’s largest known tree by a related measure, perimeter length, with a distance of 846 metres required to walk around the edge of the canopy. Thimmama Marrimanu is likely also the world’s largest tree by three-dimensional canopy volume. The tallest flowering plant species known is Eucalyptus regnans, of which a living specimen has been measured at 100.5 m (330 ft) in Southern Tasmania. The longest vine to be accurately measured is “Rattan Manau” (Calamus manan) of the palm family (historically Palmae, but now often Arecaceae) and native to the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra and Java. One unbranched stem at Buitenzorg (now Bogor) Botanic Garden, Java was carefully measured to a length of 787 feet (240 meters). Of herbaceous plants, plants without persistent woody growth above ground, Musa ingens is the largest. It can reach about 15 meters tall with a pseudostem diameter of around a meter. It also holds the record for the longest petioles or leaf stalks of any plant. Bamboos are a tribe of flowering perennial evergreen plants in the grass family Poaceae, subfamily Bambusoideae, tribe Bambuseae. Dendrocalamus is a tropical genus of giant clumping bamboo found throughout Southeast Asia. It includes Dendrocalamus giganteus, which can reach heights up to 30 m. Other records among flowering plants include, the title of largest flower, which belongs to the species Rafflesia arnoldii. One of these flowers can reach a diameter of 1 m (3.3 ft) and weigh up to 11 kg (24 lb). The largest unbranched inflorescence, resembling (but not qualifying as) a giant flower, belongs to the titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum), reaching almost 3 m (9.8 ft) in height. The absolute largest inflorescence, at up to 8 m (26 ft) long, is borne by the talipot palm (Corypha umbraculifera) of India. The largest leaves belong to either Gunnera manicata, Raphia regalis, Manicaria saccifera, Marojejya darianii, Johannesteijsmannia altifrons, or Victoria amazonica, depending on criteria.
