What are some of the biggest superfamilies?
I think Trivia must hold the record.
One of the best-known superfamilies is of course Luc(as) de Groot’s Thesis, currently including the following members:
– TheSans (Hair/Condensed)
– TheSansMono (SemiCondensed/Condensed/Typewriter)
– TheMix (Condensed)
There’s a lot of potential for expansion, obviously. Can’t wait to see the release of TheAntiquaSun Mono SemiCondensed Hair.

Panoptica doesn’t have as many fonts as Trivia, but it equals the number of styles (seven), with a different plan:
Oldstyle (Regular & Italic)
Sans (Regular, Medium and Bold)
