Prociono CF serif text font by chemoelectric Prociono CF serif text font by chemoelectric
This is an old version, significantly different from the newer ones. See [link]

The name Prociono (pro-tsee-O-no) is Esperanto for either (1) the star Procyon or (2) raccoon. The user can choose whichever meaning he or she prefers.

A serif font with large x-height, very loosely resembling Leipziger Antiqua. Postscript-flavored OpenType with ligatures and a bunch of accented letters (including those for Esperanto, by the way).

The font is released under a free software license that lets you redistribute it, modify it, redistribute modified versions, etc. See the README file in the zip.

(I would like to confess that I did some extra caps-to-caps kerning for where it says 'DATING' in the preview, and other caps-to-caps kerning is incomplete. Spacing and kerning for ordinary text is more thorough.)

You're welcome. :)

A lot of people like version 1, and version 2 (also available on dA) has very significant differences. Perhaps I ought to make a new font based more closely on version 1 and give it a new name. Maybe if I get bored sometime. :)

This is a great serif that's not so stuffy. It's pretty cool that it's here for free. I definitely see me using it in the future. Thanks and bravo.

If you want, you can try the new version of Prociono, even less stuffy than the original: [link]

Thanks. If I charged I'd have to support, and I couldn't handle that. In fact, since this licensing business is too much work, I'll likely just release any later versions into the public domain. :)
