Geneo, created by Stéphane Elbaz, is a synthesis of historic and present-day visions of typography, a slab serif constructed on an oblique axis. Its subtle contrast evokes both Renaissance elegance and the robustness of the Egyptian typefaces that were in vogue during the 19th century. Geneo falls halfway between the classic styles of Garamond and Fournier, with aspects of contemporary slab serifs like Rockwell, Boton, and even Le Monde Courrier. From this blend of styles and genres, it emerges with a singular identity perfectly suited for modern illustrations of quality, savoir-faire, and culture. Geneo's limited contrast has been carefully crafted to make the font adaptable for use as both text and headlines, as well as for small-print elements like footnotes, appendices, and captions. Its lighter styles — rarely found in today's serif type families — add delicacy to large-print works. The variety and precision of certain weights allow minute adjustments of the font color in text compositions.
