Glamour was originally released by Lanston Monotype in 1948. It is based on Corvinus and designed by Imre Reiner. Designer Colin Kahn has added some unusual variants to this family, illustrating that glamour can be taken too far and have somewhat unglamorous results. The fonts can be combined in unusual ways for typographically eccentric results. Since the serifs in Glamour are all hairline width, even in the bold, it made sense to make a hairline font with the outlines the width of the serif.
