In seeing both Icone and Avance, both of them have a rather similar look, with a similar sculptural and notan-centred paradigm.
How would they be classified? I know that Didone don't fit them. They most certainly don't fit the Oldstyle paradigm. Slabs and Transitional feel awkward for them too. But for some reason, Avance fits in its application as a body text despite its fairly quirky forms.
