Egyptienne

Egyptienne is a slab serif typeface designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1956. The design was influenced by the Clarendon model of slabs that originated in 1845. Egyptienne has a large x-height and, unlike Clarendon, contains italics so it can work well for setting body text. The typeface has been a classic, go-to slab serif for over 50 years but doesn’t seem to be used much on the web, with other humanist slabs such as Adelle being more popular.
