Book Italic

Foundry Form was drawn concurrently as a sans and a serif, with matching capital and x-height proportions for harmonious use. The design has a strong horizontal emphasis, slightly condensed proportions for economic use of space, and open counters ensuring legibility at small sizes. Both families function independently. The PC TrueType format has a six weight set that includes a true italic; the angularity and sharp serifs help to retain maximum clarity, with contrasting stroke widths to add refinement.
