From the new Sherlock Holmes movie:
My first question is, is there a typographic term for this kind of slightly smaller caps (or larger small caps, if you will)?
I've seen it in some books before, mostly for proper names. Presumably it's used because the font doesn't have a set of small caps, and scaling regular caps down 5% or 10% obviously doesn't look so bad as scaling them down to x-height.
So my second questions is, are there fonts with a set of those slightly smaller caps -- maybe in addition to a set of regular small caps?
