What is the Olympian® font?
Designed by Matthew Carter and intended for newspaper use. Contemporary newspaper columns are narrow and require typefaces that are efficient in their use of width. The old-style diagonal emphasis is used to obtain maximum counter width and space between letters; Olympian appears larger than its Modern competitors.
