Antium Schriftfamilie

Entworfen von Olcar Alcaide (2010)
Antium is inspired on Augustus capital letters and venetians's typeface styles. One of the most peculiar features that define these fonts are their predominant height of x" as well as to ascenders and descenders strokes particularly shorts. These fonts offers good legibility in small sizes, for use in editorial design, newspapers and printed material. The strong personality of its glyphs is well suited also to headlines. Antinum (Anzio), formerly the capital of the Volscians until the Romans conquered it in 468 BC. Built on the mediterranean coast near Rome. A legend attributes its foundation to a son of Ulysses and Circe. Caligula and Nero were born there. During the early morning hours of 22 January 1944, troops of the Fifth Army swarmed ashore on a fifteen-mile stretch of Italian beach near the towns of Anzio and Nettuno."
