About this font family

ITC Tempus is the work of British designer Phill Grimshaw. He claims that every calligrapher’s aspiration is to draw perfect roman capitals with a pen, but admits that this is extremely difficult. For this typeface, Grimshaw used a fountain pen on cheap, porous paper and, of course, the ink bled. The resulting forms are classic but their rugged edges deviate from the perfection of roman type. And “Tempus Sans is just Tempus with the serif surgically removed, yet the proportions of the characters work nicely,” says Grimshaw. Because of its rough quality, the typeface works best in larger point sizes, yet maintains its characters even in smaller sizes.
