Coronet was designed by type artist Robert Hunter Middleton and it was released by the Ludlow type foundry in 1937. This calligraphic typeface is one of the early attempts to produce a modern calligraphy. Robert Hunter Middleton used baroque models and added contemporary elements to them. Coronet has clear strokes with little ornamentation in its capitals and has a reduced x-height, as do other typefaces of the time, like Kabel and Koch Antiqua. The elegant and lively character of Coronet makes it an excellent choice for personal printed material. Typefaces with a similar style are Park Avenue Script or Bernhard Schoenschrift.
