Mencken is a serif typeface designed by Jean François Porchez and published through Typofonderie. It was created as a custom face for The Baltimore Sun in 2005 and later released commercially in 2017. The family is available in standard, head and text optical sizes, each in three weights with matching italics, as well as compressed and narrow widths.
