Stonehenge family features very unconventional letterforms. The fonts are both legible and elegant.

Some type traditions no longer work for this typeface such as the idea of harilines, stress, as well as the relation between stems and bowls which result in highly unique letterforms. However, others are strictly kept to make the type legible such as low contrast, low ascenders/descenders, and traditional proportions and bare-bones for letterforms on the rudimentary level.

The letterforms all about the relations betwen curves and lines. Once the rough drafts were created, a system was created to make the inconsistencies consistent.

The fact that people perceive type very differently in different sizes is largely exaggerated in Stonehenge. Many of the expressive relations between straights and curves in its letterform get lost when the type is set for book sizes, leaving the essential bare-bones. I'm glad that Stonehenge successfully carries the familiar bare-bones of types that legibility is achieved.
