About this font family
In 1987, Sumner Stone completed his designs for the Stone type family. ITC Stone solves the problem of mixing different styles of type on the same page.

The ITC Stone family consists of three subfamilies, Serif, Sans, and Informal, each consisting of three weights plus matching italics.
