Caecilia, designed by Peter Matthias Noordzij, was issued by Linotype in 1991 as PMN Caecilia in a range of weights, including small caps and text figures. This face is (perhaps) the first neohumanist slab serif, with a true slab serifed italic to match. The italic is based on renaissance parameters, meaning it slopes at 5°. This face is a graceful and sturdy slab serif, useful for various applications.
