Colonna is an inline serif display typeface created by Monotype in 1926.[1] A roman typeface, Colonna comes with some very elegant letterforms, based on artwork obtained by Stanley Morison during 1926 as part of a program to increase the range of display faces in the Monotype library. The letters of the Colonna font have an inscriptional feel about them, figures are non-ranging. Originally developed as an advertising face, Colonna is at its best when used in large sizes.[2] Like many Monotype fonts, it has been released with Microsoft Office and other Microsoft products.
