Background

In early 1997, John Warnock’s son, Chris, approached Adobe type designer Robert Slimbach with a request to design a typeface for his father’s personal use. Slimbach took on the project as a background activity with the intention of designing a single weight display roman design. After examining his early eff orts, Slimbach saw potential to expand upon the concept by designing a companion italic font. Eventually these typefaces evolved into a large composition family. Instead of limiting its use as a private set of fonts, all agreed that it should be released for wider distribution as an Adobe Original OpenType family.

After 3 years, Slimbach finally able to finish the font and released it in 2000 as Adobe Warnock Pro. The Pro extension behind the name, mark Warnock as a full featured open-type family.

Adobe Warnock family is offered 4 weights: light, regular, semibold, and bold for each of four optical ranges: caption, text, subhead, and display for each two styles: roman and italic. This sum to 32 fonts of the total member of the family (4 weights x 4 optical ranges x 2 styles).

With the whole parade glyphs containing of oldstyle figures, regular figures, small capitals, swash capitals, f-ligatures, fractions, superiors, inferiors, numerators, denominators, superior letters, alternate glyph, lower case ending glyph, math symbols, accented characters, cyrilic fonts, greek fonts, ornaments, and monetary symbols, Adobe Warnock become one of the very powerful font that available in the market.
