HistoryInspired by the carvings on meso-American monuments, David Lemon of Adobe's type staff created Copal. It's named after a resin that was burned as incense by ancient cultures and which is used today as a binding agent in printer's inks and varnishes. The fonts in Copal can be used individually or combined to achieve chromatic effects. Try the decorated letters in headlines when you're in need of a burst of primitive energy.
Menu Names And Style Linking
The fonts in this family have no style links: none are a bold or italic variant of another.
You should note that selecting a style option such as bold or italic with any of these faces will either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
About Chromatic Fonts
Font faces in this family can be used in normal fashion alone, but are also designed to by used with one face overlaid on top of another and in different colors or percentages of black.
Please see the PDF file CopalStdReadMe.pdf for a dicussion of how to use the chromatic faces of this family, with examples.
