Cormorant is an open-source serif family designed by Christian Thalmann. The design was inspired by the sixteenth century types of Claude Garamond, however, in contrast to typical Garamond-inspired text faces, Cormorant was designed as a display face. The family is available in five distinct versions: Cormorant is the standard version, Cormorant Garamond features larger counters which makes it more suitable as a text face, Cormorant Infant features a single-story a and g, Cormorant Unicase mixes lowercase and uppercase forms, and finally, Cormorant Upright is an italic design that sits upright rather than at an angle.
