What is the Serapion™ font?

Another variation on the Renaissance-Baroque Roman face, it extends the selection of text type faces. In comparison with Jannon, the contrast within the letters has been enhanced. The dynamic elements of the Renaissance Roman face have been strengthened in a way which is illustrated best in the letters “a”, “b” and “s”. These letters contain, in condensed form, the principle of this type face – in round shapes the dark stroke invariably has a round finial at one end and a sharp one at the other. Another typical feature is the lower-case “g”; the upper part of this letter consists of two geometrically exact circles, the inner of which, a negative one, is immersed down on the right, upright to the direction of the lower loop and the upright knob.

The vertical strokes slightly splay out upwards. Some details of the upper-case letters may seem to be too daring, but they are less apparent in the text sizes. It has to be admitted that typographers tend to draw letters in exaggerated sizes, as a result of which they stick to details. Serapion Italic are italics inspired partly by the Renaissance Cancelleresca. This is obvious from the drop-shaped finials of its lower-case descenders.
The type face is suitable for illustrated books, art posters and short texts. It has a rather ugly name – after St. Serapion.
