Linotype Trajanus™ font family


Designed by Warren Chappell in 1940
Warren Chappell named his typeface after the Roman Emperor Trajan (Marcus Ulpius Traianus, 53 - 117 AD), who ruled during the first and second century AD. Chappell chose this name as the capital letters in his design are based on the inscriptional letters found on the base of the famous Trajan Column in Rome. Trajanus' lowercase, like all lowercase letters, are not Roman per se, but rather evolved out of the Carolingian Minuscule style, which was devleoped during the reign of the Emperor Charlemagne (c. 800). Trajanus gives texts a classic, almost calligraphic feel.

Features:

Catalog number: 167413099

Fractions

Tag: frac

Function: Replaces figures separated by a slash with 'common' (diagonal) fractions. The user enters 3/4 in a recipe and gets the threequarters fraction.

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.

Ordinals

Tag: ordn

Function: Replaces default alphabetic glyphs with the corresponding ordinal forms for use after figures. One exception to the follows-a-figure rule is the numero character (U+2116), which is actually a ligature substitution, but is best accessed through this feature. The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).

Superscript

Tag: sups

Function: Replaces lining or oldstyle figures with superior figures (primarily for footnote indication), and replaces lowercase letters with superior letters (primarily for abbreviated French titles). The application can use this feature to automatically access the superior figures (more legible than scaled figures) for footnotes, or the user can apply it to Mssr to get the classic form.

Discretionary Ligatures

Tag: dlig

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers those ligatures which may be used for special effect, at the user's preference. The glyph for ct replaces the sequence of glyphs c t, or U+322E (Kanji ligature for "Friday") replaces the sequence U+91D1 U+66DC U+65E5.
