Once upon a time this face had a different name. Since its previous story has ended this new iteration literally gained some weight and a variable slant angle for custom italics.

Sometimes you need a clean and crisp go-to font that isn’t preinstalled on every computer in the world. Epilogue was made for that. It is familiar but unique enough to be memorable. This makes it both easy to use and a joy to apply.

The range of weights (Thin/100 to Heavy/900) make it flexible enough to accommodate any size requirement, on screen and in print. And with the variable option you can choose your own weight, like 314 or 567. If the thin is feeling too thin try 150, it’s all good.

The slant angle in the variable version can be range from 0º (upright) up to 12º (italic). This is also fun to tweak and customize in Adobe apps or CSS.
