Bombay is a caps-only display font. Its letterforms are sans serif, and they look like they come from a monospaced font. However, Bombay’s monospaced-appearance is just a strong look ; in actuality, its letters have proportional widths. These appear quite industrial and constructed, too – almost as if they had been made by a machine, rather than by Deni Anggara, the Bandung/Indonesia-based type designer behind Bombay. Specifically, this typeface’s ‘M’ and ‘W’ share a nearly-identical form, rotated 180°. Letters that are traditionally rounded, like the ‘C’ or the ‘O’ are all straight-sided. In fact, Bombay does not include any curves in it all all. The ‘Q’, which doesn’t descend, employs a unique space-saving solution for its tail. The ‘J’ also has a tail – which doesn’t descend, either – and a roof-stroke, too: these give its counter a very distinct shape. The zero features a slash inside of its counterform, distinguishing it from the ‘O’. Bombay includes a full range of numerators and denominators for typesetting fractions. Bombay is an excellent choice for headline-typesetting and logo design, but will certainly be used for concert and event flyers, too. It would even be great for branding a sports team.
