Serlio has the character of a text face, but it is a small caps displaytype in place of lowercase letters. It has a narrow width and fine, delicate serifs and hairlines.

Life is too short to follow the rules

Robert Trogman originally designed Buxom for Fotostar in 1975. Trogman's design is an old-fashioned headline face, whose style feels at home in a number a different periods: the Wild West, the 1960s-70s, and once again today!
