Combining influences from Windsor (from Stephenson Blake & Co’s Wood Letter Specimen, 1915) and Richmond Old Style (from DeLittle’s Wood Type Specimens, 1966), Grenette’s imposing serifs contrast with the serif-less interiors of certain forms such as n, h and v which allows its personality to lie within intentional asymmetry and subtle quirks. Certain characteristics evolve through the styles (Light through Black) as weight increases; from the Serifs being round and bulged in the Light, therefore feeling more delicate; to square and sturdy in the Black weight, feeling more robust, giving Grenette a distinct appearance across all styles.
Futhermore the UPPERCASE contains a distinct flavour of its own. Its expressive nature gives real texture to ALL CAPS settings, this is particularly noticeable in forms such as the «U», «B», «R» and «D» that bulge on their vertical stress.
Grenette is available in five weights — Light, Regular, SemiBold, Bold and Black with corresponding Italics. It is available to license in both Standard (‘STD’) and Professional (‘PRO’) versions. The latter contains a series of swashes and subtle ligatures, this allows multiple and contrasting expressions within the same type family, and shows the versatility of Grenette
