The Amethyst family of types is a complete series, well suited to the setting of bookwork or advertising text and display. In the family are four weights: Light, Regular, Book and Bold. Each weight includes Roman, Italic, Small Caps, Italic Small Caps, Swash Italic, Swash Italic Small Caps, plus Swashed Small Capitals (for restrained application by the font user).
Amethyst Book has been made just slightly heavier than Amethyst Light. Like the lighter weight, it carries all of the same characters, including two styles of figures and a complete suite of ligatures. This version reverses well and has been printed letterpress with fine results. Its italic has been made at the same slight angle as the lightface,
