    Chevalier Initials
    The first metal type version of Chevalier was released by the Haas Type Foundry in Switzerland. In 1946, E. A. Neukomm created the original design - the striped version in all capitals. The family was later expanded to include two more variations: one of initials and the other of an open version without the horizontal lines. In addition to these, all three fonts now have small caps in the lowercase slots, increasing their versatility.The engraved, stripe decorations and fat face letterfoms were popular trends in 19th century design. They were commonly used on things such as stock certificates and money but were also frequently seen on letterheads and business cards. This type family can still be used on a wide variety of projects today, but is perfect to add a historical touch to logos, posters, or branding for many kinds of financial, political, or legal practices.
