Amethyst Pro

Amethyst originated as a set of caps called Maxwellian, drawn by Jim Rimmer for use at the Pie Tree Press. The typeface later expanded include lowercase, italics and small caps in multiple weights. Canada Type repatriated Rimmer's body of work, and undertook aesthetic revision and remastering to bring "as close as possible to its full potential".

  • 6 weights
  • small caps
  • 8 kinds of figures
  • automatic fractions

  • ornaments
