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.
Heliotrope comes in four weights, with real italics and small caps for every weight. It includes oldstyle and tabular alternate figures.
Heliotrope comes with a separate set of caps fonts, which contain real small caps and already include my recommended letterspacing.
Build your own font bundle: your Heliotrope order will include a discount code to get additional families for $79 instead of $119 (1–2 person license only). You can also upgrade anytime to the full MB Type Library for the difference in price.
- Heliotrope has a short, plain-English font license that includes permission to use it in PDFs, websites, apps, and electronic books. It is a one-time payment, not a subscription.
- 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.
- 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.
