Design Information

Mantinia CC is a titling face inspired by the painted and engraved letterforms of Andrea Mantegna, an artist who lived during the Italian Renaissance — one of the first to study and revive the monumental lettering of Imperial Rome. Matthew Carter designed Mantinia with several distinctive ligatures more commonly found in stone than in type, a set of raised small capitals, and a few tall capitals inscriptional in origin. Through OpenType technology, it was later remastered for Carter & Cone by Kent Lew and Jill Pichotta to include all of the feature-rich typographic capabilities, including a plethora of ligatures.
