Klimax is a typeface for extremely large sizes with optically opposite styles. The counters of dark styles show the inner construction within its black shapes, and their thickness is exactly the same as the monolinear strokes of the light style.PDF Specimen

Klimax is a display typeface, meant for use in extremely large sizes. The two basic styles, Plus and Minus, are optical opposites, but both share similar metrics and kerning information, so they can be easily interchanged in a body of text without any significant change in its length. The counters and white spaces of Klimax Plus show the inner construction within its black shapes, and their thickness is exactly the same as the monolinear strokes of Klimax Minus. Klimax includes cursive italics for both weights. The ends of italic strokes are curved, with protruding terminals, which gives it a softer and more decorative feel with calligraphic characteristics.
The small caps of Klimax Plus are designed to resemble basic geometric shapes, with no inner negative spaces. Although the concept is pushed to the extreme, in most situations the letters are still quite recognisable. The small caps of Klimax Minus are more traditional, and combine well with other styles of Klimax.

smcpMost Typotheque fonts implement the Small Caps feature. In Adobe applications you can replace lower case letters with small caps using the keyboard shortcut (⌘ + ⇧ + H), or the OpenType menu.
All Small Capitals
smcp, c2scThere are two methods of applying small capitals. The first one replaces only lower case letters with small caps. The second method, All Small Caps, also replaces capital letters with small caps. It also replaces regular quotation marks, exclamation points, question marks, slashes and usually also numerals with small caps variants.
Case Sensitive Forms
caseWhen the ‘change to caps’ function is applied from within an application (not when text is typed in caps) appropriate case-sensitive forms are automatically applied. Regular brackets, parenthesis, dashes and hyphens are replaced with their capital forms.
Circled numerals and arrows
dligThe discretionary ligature feature creates real arrows when you type the combination -> (right arrow), <- (left arrow), -^ (up arrow) or ^- (down arrow). It also creates enclosed numerals when you type numerals inside parenthesis, and inverse enclosed numerals when you type numerals inside brackets. Discretionary ligatures are off by default in Adobe applications.
ligaThe standard ligatures improve spacing of text, and are applied by default.
fracTypotheque OpenType fonts already include a number of pre-designed diagonal fractions. The fraction feature allows you to create other fractions quickly and easily.
supsReplaces all styles of figures (old style, tabular, lining) and letters with their superior alternates, which can be used for footnotes, formulas, etc. Superior characters are more legible than mathematically scaled characters, have a similar stroke weight, are spaced more generously, and better complement the rest of the text.
sinfReplaces all styles of figures (old style, tabular, lining) and letters with their inferior alternates, used primarily for mathematical or chemical notation. Inferior characters are more legible than mathematically scaled characters, have a similar stroke weight, are spaced more generously, and better complement the rest of the text
