Designed by Nick Shinn and Nicolas Jenson, Nicholas is a display serif font family. This typeface has five styles and was published by Shinntype.
Meticulously drawn and kerned for the classic Tight-But-Not-Touching style of display typography, Nicholas has alternate characters that improve fit automatically. The overall effect is quite distinct from and superior to ‘optical’ kerning or mere negative tracking.
Nicholas is the display version of Goodchild, Shinntype’s Jenson revival.
