A typeface that is slanted. Oblique typefaces are different from italic typefaces, in that they are mechanically sheared, then optically adjusted. Italics, on the other hand, are designed differently from upright or roman versions. They are usually narrower than their roman counterparts, and reflect more of a calligraphic sensibility than a lowercaseoblique design.
