Glyphs Sapperlot is a layered color font designed in Glyphs:

Sapperlot in Glyphs

PDF Type Specimen

The enclosed type specimen shows some use cases and explains how to use Sapperlot in InDesign (.idml file).

Using the Precompiled OTFs

Install the OTFs, and place four text frames with the same content exactly on top of each other. Make sure each text frame uses a different Sapperlot family member, and a different color. You can use the Place-and-Link tool in InDesign to facilitate that process. Take a look at the enclosed InDesign document.

Using the Source File

To open and edit the source file, Glyphs Sapperlot.glyphs, you need the Glyphs font editor, version 2.0 and above. Read the tutorial on layered colorfonts for more details.
