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.

As a large integrated family, the Stone types can be mixed successfully with each other in newsletters, business correspondence, books, and packaging. ITC Stone Sans is a modern version of the humanistic sans-serif subcategory. In 1992, John Renner finished designing phonetic companion faces for ITC Stone Sans and ITC Stone Serif. They contain the linguistic symbols used by the International Phonetic Association, comprising more than 300 letters and diacritical marks, both historical and official.
These typefaces are appropriate for dictionaries, language guides, linguistic texts, or wherever else spoken sounds need to be typographically represented.
