Slab Serif Fonts

Many newspaper typefaces designed for the Linotype linecasting machines seem to have some Clarendon DNA in them, e.g. Excelsior™, Ionic™, or Impressum®. While close examination of many of the serifs in this category will reveal brackets, we believe that these typefaces may occasionally fall under the slab serif banner as well. In any case, they may be used superbly as text companions for display cousins whose slabs are more apparent, e.g., one could use Excelsior for body copy, and Memphis™ for the headline.
Two other families from this category worth extra attention are Egyptienne F™, by Adrian Frutiger, and Egyptian™ 505, by André Gürtler. Each of these families may be used to set both small as well as large point sizes.
