If someone would be so kind as to post Salvo Serif and/or Salvo Sans it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

if you check the FB thread it has already been posted under the name Boomer sans and Boomer serif. For some reason FB changed the name but it is the same fonts.

Objection! I do not think they are the same fonts. The FB Boomer I downloaded from Lazy Vampire's share (http://pilo.me/showthread.php?27-Font-Bureau-FB&p=18665#post18665) has a bizarre glyph set (1/3 instead of German Eszett; 5/8 instead of quote single and so on) and for that reason is simply useless:

Whereas FB Salvo seems to have all the (correct) glyphs:

I am just going by what is said on the FB website.

 

 

Cyrus Highsmith designed Salvo Sans & Salvo Serif (originally called Boomer Sans & Boomer Serif) as one series to tie the design of AARP The Magazine to AARP The Bulletin and AARP Segunda Juventud.

Boomer was a custom font and never contained any OpenType features. The OT version that's been shared is original but it's just a simple conversion from the Type 1 version. Salvo is the retail release and it contains tabular figures, etc.

Yes, but the point of the matter are the missing glyphs in Boomer, what makes it useless for text (unless you are a bookkeeper).

Calling Boomer "useless for text" is wildly inaccurate. It's being used everyday for text by dozens of magazines and newspapers all around the world.
