About Apollo™ font family

The text typeface Apollo™ was designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1962-64, and was one of the first fonts produced by Monotype for use on their new phototypesetting machine at that time. The legible and robust Apollo has a small x-height, gently bracketed serifs, moderately open counters, and a primarily oblique axis. Frutiger designed the roman to have enough heartiness to produce a good impression when printed by photolithography on smooth papers, and that strength holds nicely in this digital version. A full family with roman, italic, small caps, Old style figures, and semibold, Apollo is an excellent choice for book typography, magazine work, and headlines.
