CANADA TYPE SPECIMENS

BY PATRICK GRIFFIN

Lapis Pro

The type family Lapis was originally designed by Canadian typographer Jim Rimmer. Demonstrating a wide variety of stylistic influences as well as a great deal of creativity and confidence, it consisted of ‘blackletter angularity [and] Dutch-like curvature ... strung together with a mix of wedged, tapered and leaning serifs.’ The Lapis fonts were remastered in 2013 by Canada Type, resulting in Lapis Pro.

Lapis Pro contains:

  • 6 fonts containing over 760 glyphs
  • 3 weights
  • small caps
  • stylistic alternates
  • ligatures
  • ordinals
  • case-sensitive forms
  • 6 kinds of figures
  • automatic fractions
  • extended Latin language support
