Cochin

Cochin is a serif typeface originally designed by Georges Peignot in 1913. The design was based off the eighteenth century engravings of Nicolas Cochin. Matthew Carter revised Cochin in 1977, creating an updated version for Linotype. Cochin is an ornate serif, especially in the italic cut, where characters such as the d and s add a unique elegance.
