SONNET is a set of fonts with the look of early letterpress printing; the bold and beautiful letterforms contrast with the roughness of the technology and paper of the time. This would be a good alternative to the overused and ahistoric Caslon Antique.
Sonnet was inspired by a facsimile of Shakespeare’s First Folio as published by Thomas Thorpe in 1609. The full series includes many typographic features of the original, including italics, swash italics, small caps, old-style figures, long s, and more.
Version 2.0 makes use of Opentype features for easier use. Now the Regular font also includes the Small Caps, and the Italics font includes the Swash Caps, but these are also available separately if you prefer, especially if you need accented characters.
