Fortescue

Fortescue is a serif typeface released by Colophon Foundry in 2009. It was originally commissioned for an identity project and later released commercially. The design features triangular serifs, a distinctive blade-shaped leg on the R and K and a sharp, pointy ear on the g. Fortescue is available in three weights—regular, semibold and bold—each with matching italic styles.
