Sentinel is a slab serif typeface designed by Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones. It was released in 2009 through H&FJ (now known as H&Co). Sentinel was created to address the shortcomings of classical slab serifs such as Clarendon, such as the lack of italics and insufficient weights. With six weights and matching italics, Sentinel makes an excellent font for display use as well as body copy.
