LEYDEN ITALIC SPECIAL BY LARS BERGQUIST

 

Leyden Italic Special is a supportive font meant to accompany Leyden Italic that includes ligatures, fractions and symbols.

The complete Leyden typeface comes with many ligatures, a small-caps font, and an accompanying black sans. Leyden News is a variant of Leyden, optimised for use in magazines, papers and news-letters, where type is often of necessity smallish and compact. This means that while basic Leyden letterforms are used, x-height is larger and detail work is more robust and sometimes simplified, all in the interest of high legibility when printing small size type on indifferent paper, and often with indifferent printing too. In spite of this, figures remain lower-case or ranging, though the bold and bold italic styles, which will mainly be used for headers, have upper-case or lining figures.
