Maximus® font family


Designed by Walter Tracy in 1967
Walter Tracy designed Maximus font in 1967, when it appeared with Linotype Ltd in England. Maximus was originally intended as a newspaper typeface with two weights for small ads.
The bolder weight offered here was developed especially for emphasis within columns of text.
The alphabet as a whole has a broader design than most types to increase legibility in smaller point sizes.
This ensures that it will draw the reader's attention, especially when it is mixed with other typefaces. The capitals of Maximus font are a good choice for use as initials.

Features

Languages

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.
