Sans, Serif, Stencil, and Inline in one Typeface?
0

Hi everyone!

Does anyone know of a single typeface that has sans serif, serif, stencil, and inline (or outlined) styles? Again, I'm looking for a single typeface that has all of these styles included—I know, quite a tall order, but I'm curious if one exists. Audree is the only one I know that comes close. It has a so-called normal style, but not a pure sans serif.

Thanks!

The closest that I can recall is https://www.theleagueofmoveabletype.com/ostrich-sans and it is strictly sans-serif; no actual stencil but a dashed version. Someone may have written something like that in Metafont but I have no real idea.

Thanks! I wasn't aware of that one.

If you look at http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/list/almost_free, there is currently a large family named Look, in similar spirit: Sans, serif and script with weathered and outline-shadow variants. No stencil, though, as far as I can see.

Oh, well… a near miss, anyway.
