cochineal – Cochineal fonts with support

Cochineal is a fork from the Crim­son fonts (Ro­man, Italic, Bold, BoldI­talic only) re­leased un­der the OFL by Se­bas­tian Kosch. Th­ese re­mark­able fonts are in­spired by the fa­mous old­style fonts in the gar­alde fam­ily (Gara­mond, Bembo) but, in the end, look more sim­i­lar to Min­ion, though with smaller xheight and less plain in de­tail. The Crim­son fonts on which these were based had roughly 4200 glyphs in the four styles men­tioned above. Cochineal adds more than 1500 glyphs in those styles so that it is pos­si­ble to make a sup­port col­lec­tion that con­tains es­sen­tially all glyphs in all styles. Bring­ing the Semi­bold styles up the same level would have re­quired adding about 2000 ad­di­tional glyphs, which I could not even con­tem­plate.

The fonts are pro­vided in OpenType and PostScript for­mats.
