Claude Garamond original specimen c. 1535

The family consists of two fonts, Antoinette Regular and Antoinette Slant to be used in small sizes like those of a running text.

Evolution of the early designs

Attention to detail in its construction allows room for variation, thus adapting to a variety of editorial works. It features pronounced contrasts, a skewed axis, and a lower x-height when compared to that of Modern fonts. Antoinette is versatile, harmonious, timeless, elegant and delicate.
