What is the Contenu font?

Contenu is the new book font family designed for an upcoming publication on book design. The name is French for content and this is what the family is designed for: text, body copy, and book layout. If it has a style, it is a modern take on oldstyle serif font using Jenson as a mask.
As has been my practice lately, I made a Contenu Book family of Book, Book Italic, Bold, & Bold Italic. Plus I made a Contenu family of Medium, Italic, Black, & Black Italic. There are eight individual fonts, two 4-font family, and the 8-font family. There is also Contenu Book Display —more elegant with tighter smoother spacing. And a 4-font Contenu EBook — 8-bit for ePUB and MOBI use. More…
Book and Medium use my 2010 OpenType feature set, but I made a new more limited feature set for the bolds and bold italics as I am convinced that the fancy features are not used with the bolder versions, and further that small caps are butchered as the font becomes too black.

You're probably thinking - Is Contenu available to Download for free?

The short answer is no. Contenu is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Contenu, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Contenu and be done with it.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Contenu is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Contenu and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Contenu. Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Contenu for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Contenu Download" you will see a lot of websites that will say "Free Download" but these are just attempts to get you to click on a link which will either take you to an ad landing page or you risk getting viruses on your computer. In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Contenu remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
