Froben Antiqua is a serif typeface family intended for characterful communication, editorial and book design. Details and proportions, which bring character to both small and large sizes, are inspired by the works of famous Basle Renaissance printers Johann and Hieronymus Froben. Clear differentiation of round and straight forms and variation in letter-width make for distinctive patterns in all styles. A strong emphasis has been put on the relationship between Regular and Display and their respective Italics, but also the pan-european extensions Cyrillic and Greek.
