Caponi Slab Font Family

The late Amid Capeci commissioned Caponi Slab for headline use when he was design director at Entertainment Weekly. A wide range of topics could potentially end up on the cover of the magazine from week to week, from high-minded Oscar movies, to controversial pop stars, to gleefully trashy reality television, so the family needed to cover many tones in one cohesive range of weights. The solution was a spectrum from elegance to exuberance: the lightest weights clearly show their origin in Bodoniís work, but the family transforms into a boisterous slab serif as it gains weight. Caponi Slabís short ascenders and descenders allow it to work with tight leading, and its low contrast helps it to hold its own on the page no matter the size.
