Also during the 1950s, a titling version of Palatino® was produced. This had several alternate characters, ans was designed for optimum legibility in larger point sizes. A Greek companion, named Phidias, was also created. Palatino nova Titling includes the characters of these classic titling faces in digital form. True to its roots, Palatino nova Titling´s extended character set includes alternate glyphs, ligatures, Small Caps, Oldstyle figures, superiors, inferiors, and ordinals. Palatino nova Titling may be accented with a heavier titling face, Palatino nove Imperial. The two all caps typefaces, Palatino nova Titling and Palatino nova Imperial, both have reduced character sets compared with the other Palatino nova faces. Originally this alphabet was designed as a metal typeface named Sistina, which was also cut by August Rosenberger.
The ratio of capital height to the thickness of the main strokes within the Palatino concept are 1:12 in Palatino nova Titling, 1:11 in Aldus nova Book, 1:9 in Palatino nova Roman, 1:7 in Palatino nova Imperial, and 1:5 in Palatino nova Bold.
