Fraunces is a display, soft-serif typeface inspired by the mannerisms of the early 20th century such as Windsor, Souvenir, and the Cooper Series. Designed with Phaedra Charles and released by Google Fonts, Fraunces has 4 axes that generate 100+ static styles. Besides the more common Weight and Optical Size controllers, there are 2 custom axes, Softness and Wonk that rule respectively the “wetness” or “inkiness”, and the substitution of “wonky” characters, such as the lean of the h, n, and m in the Roman, and the flagged ball terminals of the b, d, h, k, l, v, and w glyphs of the Italic.
