He­liotrope is one of the fonts avail­able for body text in this book. (Click on the font-se­lec­tion tool­bar at the bot­tom of the page to try it.)

He­liotrope is nei­ther sans nor serif. Rather, it’s a hy­brid, com­bin­ing the struc­tural skele­ton of a sans with the stroke con­trast and read­abil­ity of a serif. The italic is in­spired by black­let­ter faces. Is it the weird­est font I’ve ever de­signed? Maybe. But it wears its weird­ness mildly.

  1. He­liotrope comes in four weights, with real ital­ics and small caps for every weight. It in­cludes old­style and tab­u­lar al­ter­nate fig­ures.

  2. He­liotrope comes with a sep­a­rate set of caps fonts, which con­tain real small caps and al­ready in­clude my rec­om­mended let­terspac­ing.

  3. He­li­otrope has a short, plain-Eng­lish font li­cense that in­cludes per­mis­sion to use it in PDFs, web­sites, apps, and elec­tronic books.

  4. Each li­cense cov­ers mul­ti­ple peo­ple, but only within a sin­gle or­ga­ni­za­tion or fam­ily. A li­cense can­not be split among friends or ran­dom strangers. De­tails here.
  5. He­liotrope has no demo ver­sion, but I of­fer a 30-day re­turn op­tion: if the fonts aren’t your style, you can can­cel your li­cense for a refund.
