The Tabac type system is a static Old Style typeface with modern shapes and distinct, wedge-shaped serifs. It is primarily designed for newspaper, magazine and book typesetting. By scaling the weight in all styles, including bold, Tabac boasts great variability. Each style works as a font of its own, featuring the full set of glyphs. These styles may be combined depending on the user; the choice of text and title face thus depends fully on the designers own taste, on the needs of the readers and the technologies of printing in use.
