Colonna is an inlineserifdisplay typeface created by Monotype in 1926. 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. Like many Monotype fonts, it has been released with Microsoft Office and other Microsoft products.
