For years, Matthew Carter wondered why no Latins with Bodoni proportions had been developed or why no Bodonis had Latin serifs. He solved his question by drawing Rocky Regular and Bold, with Italics, to fill the gap, then expanded the family with the aid of Richard Lipton. Rocky was originally designed as the signature headline typeface for Roger Black’s redesign of the Rocky Mountain News. But it can skillfully add color to any book, magazine, or website needing typographic sparkle. Carter & Cone’s Rocky, Rocky Condensed, Rocky Extra Condensed, and Rocky Compressed are available in Light, Regular, Medium, Bold, and Black, all including companion Italics giving you 40 different ways to add some visual punch.
