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. Most combined type styles, because they arent designed to work together, often have radically different characteristics such as cap heights, stem weights, and proportions. The ITC Stone family consists of three subfamilies, Serif, Sans, and Informal, each consisting of three weights plus matching italics.
This slab serif is a general purpose type in six weights.
The lighter weights are useful for short passages of text. The heavier weights are a versatile tool for setting headlines. Available weights are Extra Light, Light, Regular, Semibold, Bold, Black.
The SFPL family was developed as part of a visual identity program for the San Francisco Public Library.
It is intended as an economical, easy to use, highly legible typeface family for publishing newsletters, brochures, booklets, annual reports and the like.
