Type Foundry: MicrosoftThe Centaur™ Fonts Family were designed by Bruce Rogers, a well renowned type designer of the United States typographic community, in 1914 for the Metropolitan Museum to use for titles. Subsequently, a variety of people reworked Centaur fonts into a text face. The Centaur Fonts Family cannot be disguised that, in the opinion of the writer, each version has lost some of the vigor of the version that preceded it. The Centaur Font Family is what is known as a Venetian face, characterized by stress, minimal contrast between thick and thin strokes, the slanted bar in the “e”, and heavy serifs. You can use it for titles, but Centaur Fonts Family remains readable in much smaller sizes than anybody ever dreamed of. Centaur fonts are available in both Opentype (.otf) and TrueType (.ttf) font formats.
