Designed by Roger Excoffon in 1969
Antique Olive has been designed by the famous french type designer Roger Excoffon. In 1960 he first designed the Nord and Nord italic. Which perfectly fits for advertising, signage and poster purposes. The Bold and Compact weights had been designes in 1963. Later in 1965 the Black weight was released. Finally in 1968 the Bold Condensed and in 1969 the Roman and iIalic weights had been released.
Antique Olive has a very large x-height and open letterforms, therefore it is very readable and ideal for smaller point sizes.

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.
