Background

Created by Adobe type designer Robert Slimbach, Cronos is a new sans serif typeface family that embodies the warmth and readability of oldstyle roman typefaces. Because it derives much of its appearance from the calligraphically inspired type of the Italian Renaissance, Cronos has an almost handwritten appearance, setting it apart from most other sans serif designs and making it an effective choice for text composition. The italic design was inspired by early chancery style italics and is both elegant and distinguished. U.S. Patent Design 400,913.
