Bassa Typeface Bassa
Language Kit
$19 USD

 

We’re happy to announce our first African support product — the Bassa Language Kit. Used primarily in Liberia and Sierra Leone, the Vah script is an indigenous invention and although the script is generally unknown outside of the African continent, there are several organizations supporting the widespread use of this script.

Bassa Font Sample Text

The typeface illustrated above was designed by Jason Glavy and represents one of the most common print varieties used in publications but there are also a number of handwritten variants. The Bassa Vah (or simply “Vah”) script requires no complex rules for proper display but does make use of 5 different tones (that are always written with one of seven different vowel signs). Our support provides the correct display for all such combinations.
