Romis

A roman capital typeface, renaissance style. Individually shaped serifs and the absence of any geometrically straight lines signify our humanist interpretation of the Capitalis Monumentalis. »Romis« features true small caps instead of a lowercase alphabet. It comes in six weights and adds a narrow oblique to every weight for maximum flexibility.

Finaltype Quality of Shape

Our typefaces are characterized by exceptional quality of shape and utmost attention to detail. Curved shafts, delicate transitions and, not least, highly individual serifs bring Romis to life. Its unique details give this typeface a humanity seldom found in the age of digital type.

Numbers

Romis’ default numbers are tabular numbers, which allow for smooth and simple tables out of the box. Proportional, kerned numbers and optional ligatures for use within text are also included. These numbers and features need to be activated in the respective software (see video below). All in all, Romis contains eight different sets of numbers (including italics). A special feature: Roman numerals – provided as stylistic sets of the respective letters.

Proportional numbers as stylistic-sets or via OpenType dialogue in Adobe InDesign.

Features

Common features are applied automatically. The four different number sets need to be selected manually. Tabular numbers and mathematical signs can be vertically aligned via space. This also applies to small cap numbers. Space, period, comma and colon use the same grid as the numbers and can be aligned along them.
