Orpheus is a serif typeface originally designed by Walter Tiemann in 1928. Tiemann designed a separate italic version of Orpheus under the name Euphorion in 1936. In 2011, Canada Type released a digital revision of these two typefaces, combining them into one family with the name Orpheus Pro. The typeface features a beautiful, flowing italic design that takes on a calligraphic feel, especially in the huge collection of ornate ligatures, alternate and swash characters.
