Hierophant Serif Font is a sophisticated and luxurious serif font that has the heritage of classic Old Style and Transitional type while having the crisp lines and functionality of contemporary fonts. Its distinguishing features include a high-contrast combined with diagonal stress, along with pinched stems and horizontals. This gives Hierophant a hand-drawn feel which reflects the influence of the work of 16th century calligrapher Giovanni Francesco Cresci upon this family.
OpenType features include stylistic sets of alternate glyphs, the first of which contains ornate teardrop serifs and ball terminals (ss01) that dramatically changes the look of your text and is ideally suited for short runs of text – such as headlines and branding. Swash alternates for certain glyphs are available via stylistic sets 2 and 3.
Other useful features include Small Caps at the click of a button, and Old Style Figures are an option to the default proportional figure style.
There are 14 fonts altogether over 7 weights in roman and italic, you can also avail of two variable fonts which allow you to fine tune the weight to your exact liking. Hierophant has an extensive character set (1000+ glyphs) that covers every Latin European language.
