Italic

a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

An attempt to go back towards the beauty of fine book printing, inspired in Britain’s literary classics. Athelas takes full advantage of the typographic silence, that white space in the margins, between the columns, the lines, the words, the lettershapes and finally, within the characters themselves. It is a typeface with open counters, elegant curves and graceful serifs.

Fluid shapes in the roman variants meet their counterpart in a more angular italic, but there are no sharp edges in the entire character set. Athelas also takes advantage of the technical developments made in offset printing. It shows its best side in finely crafted books and high quality printing conditions, or in digital works that place a premium on the tone and beauty of the piece.

Athelas respects the cultural needs of languages where diacritic marks play an indispensable role. It has a large character set covering most Latin-based languages, as well as monotonic Greek (designed by Irene Vlachou) and Cyrillic (designed by Tom Grace). As recognised by its usage in Apple Inc.’s iBooks app and the desktop operating system Mavericks, the complete Athelas family has been optimised for today’s varied screen
