Turnip

David Jonathan Ross is a master of contrast. His playful Trilby, majestic (and enormously extensive) Condor and the fun Manicotti all show that, some more subtle than others. Turnip has plenty of the subtle but visible contrast variation, a wide top-heavy design with squarish inner and round outer curves and sharp angles that make for paragraphs "with a bite" as he calls it. It all sounds clunky, but makes the paragraphs sit remarkably well on a page. I loved Joshua Darden's Freight Micro, and this goes into similar direction, with Bookman (and hints of Clarendon?) as a role model. Take a look at Turnip here

A great font selection. Modern with a hant of tradition, a great combination.
