About this font family

Contenu Book Display is a free gift to users of the Contenu Family of fonts (though I have made it free for everyone).

Because Contenu is designed for text use, it is spaced for body copy in the 9-12 point range. That is far too much for heads, subheads, and the like. So I made this display version of Contenu Book to use for headers. In the process of tightening the spacing at the very large sizes, I also made some minor modifications to the glyph shapes to make this version a little more elegant. More…

Contenu is the new book font family designed for an upcoming book on book family design. The name is French for content and this is what the family is designed for: text, body copy, and book layout. If it has a style, it is a modern take on oldstyle serif font using Jenson as a mask.

There are no plans for display versions of the bolder weights or the italics. If you want them, use Contenu Bold, Contenu Black, or any of the four italics and tighten the tracking.
