Default settings have rounded brackets in the serifs of C, G and S (and of course their lowercase, small cap versions and diacritic siblings). A stylistic set (available in Adobe InDesign) switches these to serifs with a sharper cut, which makes the type look a bit crisper. For instance if you want to use a single word at a large size.
Eames Century Modern uses these automatically-substituted letter combinations to solve space and spacing issues.
This set of heavy woodtype-inspired figures contain figures, superiors and inferiors (that double as fractions), selected currency symbols and punctuation. The widths of the three Poster Numerals form a system that can be used to create striking patterns, interesting math and novelty bonus checks.
The Eames Exhibits Ornaments contains a range of left and right facing arrows and pointers that are drawn to fit the proportions of Eames Century Modern. An OpenType feature controls the appropriate tail, center and head. Length is determined by how many of the same letters are typed.
Eames Century Modern features nine figure styles. Included are text figures for use in running text, lining figures for use with uppercase forms and small caps figures. Each of these styles is supplemented with tabular figures for use in columnar settings. Superior figures are positioned slightly above the cap height and inferior figures are placed at descender depth. Plus, superscript and subscript figures are included for use in fractions, footnotes, etc.
The Eames’ pragmatism was always tempered with their love of adornment, so this collection would not be complete without a host of carefully drawn ornaments and a galley of frames. These elements are sure to provide dignified directional stability and exquisitely cultivated closure to any design project.
The Eames Century Modern collection contains encodings that support well over two dozen languages. The OpenType fonts feature support for numerous Central European characters and more. Below is a complete list of sustainable tongues.
