A reimagined display face, with a twist.

Acropolis is the “Grecian” (bevelled) member of The Proteus Project, a collection of four interchangeable type families designed in different nineteenth century styles.

Every historical revival involves creating things that the original source lacks. In the case of Acropolis, the traditional grecian style has been outfitted with a crucial component which past typefounders neglected to provide: an italic. Lacking any historical precedent, Acropolis Italic attempts to be sympathetic to historical form while avoiding nostalgic clichés.
