Kopius Condensed
First of the wonders of the great West to be brought within reach of the tourist were the Yosemite and the Big Trees, on the completion of the first railway.

Of course with this extension of steel ways through our wilderness there is loss as well as gain. Nearly all railroads are bordered.

I heard of the Santa Fé trains running to the edge of the Grand Cañon of Arizona, I was troubled with thoughts of the disenchantment likely to follow.

The locomotives and trains are mere beetles and caterpillars

Kopius Condensed

Kopius Condensed™ is a narrower variation of the Kopius regular style. Matching that, this space-conscious variety owns friendly features and an easy-going, yet confident personality. With editorial use in mind the Kopius Condensed types provide an enjoyable reading experience in continuous text, as well as display sized type.

The slightly curved stems and innovative bracket style imply a brush-influenced flow and add warmth to a page in print or digital. Despite the letters’ narrow fit the counters remain open for good legibility even in small body text.

Kopius Condensed expands the multitude of the type family and provides increased typographic range and applications. The condensed font package includes two complementary non-alphabetic styles, the Kopius Extras Box Headings and Kopius Extras Labels. Applied alone or in combination these appealing forms offer unlimited range of assembled composites. Weight adjusted arrows and word logos round out the broad character set.

OpenType enhancements provide alternate glyph features including figure sets, small caps, fractions, and many more. The inspirational source of the Kopius family remotely references an Antiqua typeface family named Liberta, designed by Herbert Thannhaeuser mid 1950s for the East German type foundry Typoart. A condensed semibold and extrabold (schmalhalbfett, schmalfett) were published in 1959 and 1960 respectively.
