What is the Contenu font?

Contenu is the new book font family designed for an upcoming publication on book design. The name is French for content and this is what the family is designed for: text, body copy, and book layout. If it has a style, it is a modern take on oldstyle serif font using Jenson as a mask.
As has been my practice lately, I made a Contenu Book family of Book, Book Italic, Bold, & Bold Italic. Plus I made a Contenu family of Medium, Italic, Black, & Black Italic. There are eight individual fonts, two 4-font family, and the 8-font family. There is also Contenu Book Display —more elegant with tighter smoother spacing. And a 4-font Contenu EBook — 8-bit for ePUB and MOBI use. More…
Book and Medium use my 2010 OpenType feature set, but I made a new more limited feature set for the bolds and bold italics as I am convinced that the fancy features are not used with the bolder versions, and further that small caps are butchered as the font becomes too black.
