Basic Font Information
=================

Neuton is a clean, dark, somewhat Dutch-inspired serif font which reminds you a little of Times. It has a large height, short extenders, and a compact width for better screen use, and economy of space.

The family will comprise a regular, italic, and cursive, each in five weights and with smallcaps. Two italics — one called "italic", and the other "cursive" — are uncommon, but very useful. Ever tried emphasizing something already emphasized? Beyond that obvious example, there are other uses.

Sometimes a text needs a different flavor or feel. While one roman can work for a variety of texts, the companion italics don't always. In more classical or personal documents, a stiff, sober, modern and down-to-earth italic will never work. And in many essays, some of the fancier italics look ridiculous. Who said a roman needs only one companion?

Neuton is in continuing development and will come to have:
* 5 weights, from Extralight to Extrabold
* Italic and Smallcaps versions
* A cursive variant
* Extended width versions

Bit late to comment but I use Neuton as Go-To-Font on my Kindle (my old one and my new Paperweight as well). Took initially a bit of time to get it to work but it is really worth it. The font works so great on an E-Reader, much better then the pre-installed fonts.

I rarely see people in DeviantArt do the same typeface design discipline like you do. Hope you get to release a few more of these...
