    Baton is a sans serif typeface with narrow proportions combining eccentric shapes inspired by french vernacular typography with the simplicity of modern sans serifs. Peculiar details and a low contrast make the design slightly strange yet elegant, but it is the exaggerated high and low midline in the uppercase and the small x-height which give Baton its distinctive flair. Relatively wider and more toned down, the lowercase allow Baton to function not only as a display typeface, but also for short texts such as leads in magazine. Baton comes in 10 styles with an extended language support and a wide range of OpenType features such as ligatures, alternate letters, tabular and lowercase figures, fractions, and a stylistic set of uppercase with thin accents for headlines with tight leading.
