Diorite

By Three Islands Press

Diorite is modern face built on classical letterforms—but left with a bit of residual roughness. Some might call Diorite forthright, others brutal. (It reminded the designer of the dark, hard igneous rock of the same name, treasured by the ancient Egyptians for statuary.) The typeface has a relatively chunky, four-style family; the italics are true cancelleresca corsiva, also writ heavy.
