About Calypso I

Calypso I (Italian) draws its inspiration from type founders' plentiful show-off-letters, which were typical on title pages and lithographs in the early 19th century. It borrows luscious details from these but inherits a stiff modern backbone from its parent, Calypso E (Egyptian). Within the Calypso type family all fonts share the same dimensions and work together consistently.

Calypso I supports many languages and includes, for example, four sets of basic
numerals, circled numbers, alternative characters, case sensitive forms
and dingbats. Give it a go on drop caps and headlines or even set short
paragraphs with it. It loves colour and effects."
