What is the Albiona font?
A contemporary slab-serif which revisits aspects of Robert Besley’s classic , designed around 1842 for Thorowgood and Co. and named after the Clarendon Press in Oxford.
Subsequently extended by Stephenson Blake in the 1950s, Albiona adds the inwardly-curved stroke terminals of the same foundry ’s Grotesque series, and includes italics and old-style and tabular numerals. The original Clarendon’s ball serifs and calligraphic eccentricities have been rationalised and streamlined for functional contemporary uses.
The family consists of five weights plus italics and a stencil, and its clean readable style is perfect for both extended text as well as headline setting.
