Notable Type Releases
- The caps-only CoFo Cinema 1909 mixes art nouveau and modern sensibilities and achieves a stately elegance best suited to large display use cases.

- Grilli Type has refreshed GT Pressura to modernize it beyond its 2012 origins while continuing to expand its visual voice. And a fantastic microsite as ever.
