Aptly - The concept is “Geo-Soft”: characters are constructed from arcs of circle connected by orthogonal straight lines, with few diagonals as soft edges are carefully balanced against rigorous structure.
Bank Gothic is a very popular choice as a titling face for science fiction books, posters and countless television and movie titles. It is also a popular typeface for use in computer games and digital graphics.
What intrigued me about Buslingthorpe was the virtuoso challenge it presented, of designing a typeface that would, despite a ridiculously tiny x-height, still possess a coherent harmony between upper and lower case, and read comfortably. So I made these my benchmarks, and determined to outdo them in dramatic fashion. —Nick Shinn, Orangeville, March 2021

(a) when you click on the area marked "ACCEPT LICENSE AGREEMENT", or, (b) if you are acquiring Font Software on a floppy disk, when you open the package in which the font is contained. If you do not wish to be bound by the Agreement, you cannot access, use or download the Font Software. Please read all of the Agreement before you agree to be bound by its terms and conditions.
You hereby agree to the following:
1. You are bound by the Agreement and you acknowledge that all Use (as defined herein) of the Font Software (as defined herein) supplied to you by MTI is governed by the Agreement.
2. "MTI" as used herein shall mean collectively Monotype Imaging Inc., its successors and assigns, its parent and affiliated corporations, its authorized distributors, and any third party which has licensed to MTI any or all of the components of the Font Software supplied to you pursuant to the Agreement.
3. "Font Software" as used herein shall mean software which, when used on an appropriate device or devices, generates typeface and typographic designs and ornaments. Font Software shall include all bitmap representations of typeface and typographic designs and ornaments created by or derived from the Font Software. Font Software includes upgrades, updates, related files, permitted modifications, permitted copies, and related documentation.
4. "Basic Licensed Unit" as used herein shall mean up to five (5) Workstations (as defined herein) connected to no more than one (1) printer with a non-volatile memory (for example, a hard drive), all located at a single geographic location. If you intend to use the Font Software on more equipment than permitted by a Basic Licensed Unit, you must create an " Expanded Licensed Unit" by obtaining from MTI, for an additional fee, a site license for all such equipment. "Licensed Unit" as used herein shall mean a Basic Licensed Unit or an Expanded Licensed Unit as is appropriate to the context in which the term is used. If you have acquired an entire Font Software Library (that is, a single license for Font Software for 500 or more different typeface designs) and you use such Font Software Library only at a single geographic location, then "Licensed Unit" shall mean up to twenty (20) Workstations connected to no more than two (2) printers with non-volatile memories at such geographic location.
5. "Use" of the Font Software shall occur when an individual is able to give commands (whether by keyboard or otherwise) that are followed by the Font Software, regardless of the location in which the Font Software resides.
6. "Derivative Work" shall mean binary data based upon or derived from Font Software (or any portion of Font Software) in any form in which such binary data may be recast, transformed, or adapted including, but not limited to, binary data in any format into which Font Software may be converted.
