Tolstoy™ font family

Designed by Lloyd Springer
The Tolstoy family is a variation on our own Eucaliptus fonts, with more rounded character tops. (1) When using Tolstoy at smaller point sizes, we suggest that you increase the tracking of the font. At very small point sizes, this font looks particularily good with lots of space between the characters.(2) This font is intended for use as a display face and works best when set in one or two lines, and at larger point sizes. The results, therefore, of setting these fonts as body text may not always be pleasing. There is a companion family for Tolstoy, called Eucaliptus, which is available from TypeArt Foundry. While the overall flavour of the font is very similar, there are numerous differences which may make Eucaliptus the better choice for some design applications. Tolstoy and Eucaliptus have some notable differences. There are numerous character modifications (including a rounding of the tops of the B, b, D, d, P, p, R and r some special bitemarks added to the circular characters such as C, c, E, e, F, f, O, o, Q and q). These slight adjustements are enough to make Tolstoy a more exciting and distinctive typeface for certain design applications. . In the PC version of this font family the style names are slightly different from those used in the Mac versions. But the fonts are otherwise identical.
