Typonine Stencil exhibits an elusive combination of power and grace, unlike other stencil types that are often associated with shipping containers and crude lettering. Its sharp design, two widths and ornaments make for strong headlines, effective signage and suggestions of custom lettering.
Typonine Stencil is an unusual take on industrial letterforms with Dutch Old Style characteristics. While stencil types are often associated with shipping containers and crude lettering, Typonine Stencil exhibits an elusive combination of power and grace. Its sharp design, two widths and three weights make for elegant headlines, decorative signage, and suggestions of custom lettering.
Typonine Font Family
The Typonine type collection consists of a Sans and a Condensed version, intended for all-purpose typography, a Hairline version for extremely large headlines, a Monospaced version for correspondence and computer code, and finally also a Stencil version for elegant headlines. Combine it with Thema, a serif typeface structurally related to the rest of the Typonine family.

Proportional Old-style Figures
onum, pnumTypotheque fonts contain various styles of numerals within one font. Proportional Lining Figures come standard in all our headline and newspaper fonts. Their proportions are specifically designed to work well with capital letters (for example, in headlines). The proportional Old-style Figures feature changes standard figures to Old-style Figures which work well in running text, as they have the same proportions as lower case letters with their ascenders and descenders.
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
