Cochineal is a serif font family, a fork of Crimson, a remarkable creation of Sebastian Kosch inspired by old-style font designers. The name Cochineal is intended to suggest that, while it is crimson, there may be bugs involved.
Cochineal provides Roman, Bold, Italic and Bold Italic. More than 1500 glyphs were added, allowing a more than modest chance that some poor spacing or kerning or accent placement might have been introduced. Such problems will occur in the less frequented parts of the fonts.
