The Immortel family of serif typefaces comprises four variants (Infra, Colera, Vena, and Acedia), all designed with multiplexed set widths to be interchangeable without causing text to reflow. The Infra and Vena variants – inspired by Robert Granjon and Jacques-François Rosart, respectively – are intended for use in running body text. They include “Median” italics for longer blocks of text, as well as more exaggerated italics for stronger emphasis. They both also offer a variable grade axis for slight weight adjustments, to accommodate different typographic environments and user preferences.
