boldness adds contrast
0

I'm in the final stages of a serif typeface where the light weights are practically monoline, and contrast is added as it gets bolder, creating a transition from an almost Egyptian style light slab to a Modern black. Do you know of any other typefaces that do this, and what classification would you give the typefamily?

Perhaps a Didone. I think Nick Shinn once said they had constant horizontal line thickness. Between sizes, anyway. Not sure if he mentioned weights.
