Font of the day: Fedra Serif

Fedra Serif A is a sturdy face, which looks magnificent in print. I love the low contrast, the short ascenders and descenders, the tight spacing, the a, the g, M, P, K... If you need a finer face, go for Fedra Serif B, if you need an accompanying grotesque, try Fedra Sans, if you want striking headlines, take the Display cut, need to use tables? There's Fedra Mono too. Stunning language support, (including cyrillic, Greek and Arabic!) beautiful italics and loads of OpenType features make Fedra a family fun to work with. Of course at €90/cut it's not cheap at all, but that's a font that will serve you well for years! While at Typotheque, don't forget to check out Greta and Jigsaw. Also great: the sketches of fonts in development, nice insights.
