Chevalier™ famille de polices

Conçue par E. A. Neukomm en 1946
The first metal type version of Chevalier was released by the Haas Type Foundry in Switzerland. In 1946, E. A. Neukomm created the original design - the striped version in all capitals. The family was later expanded to include two more variations: one of initials and the other of an open version without the horizontal lines. In addition to these, all three fonts now have small caps in the lowercase slots, increasing their versatility.The engraved, stripe decorations and fat face letterfoms were popular trends in 19th century design. They were commonly used on things such as stock certificates and money but were also frequently seen on letterheads and business cards. This type family can still be used on a wide variety of projects today, but is perfect to add a historical touch to logos, posters, or branding for many kinds of financial, political, or legal practices.

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.


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).


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.

Discretionary Ligatures

Tag: dlig

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers those ligatures which may be used for special effect, at the user's preference. The glyph for ct replaces the sequence of glyphs c t, or U+322E (Kanji ligature for "Friday") replaces the sequence U+91D1 U+66DC U+65E5.
