Leitura News from DSType

Today we’re pleased to welcome DSType’s Leitura News to the Typekit library. Designed for editorial use, it comes in eight styles (four weights with matching italics), four of which have been manually TrueType hinted to render well at text sizes.


Top to bottom: Acta Display Black Italic, Leitura News Roman 3 (with italic ampersand), Roman 4, and Roman 2. (source text)

At larger text sizes Leitura News feels studious and bright. Its bold (Roman 4), with a bit of letterspacing, can be successful in short bursts at these sizes.


Velino Poster with Leitura News Roman 4 (subhead, sidebar) and Roman 2 (text). (source text)

At smaller text sizes Leitura News feels crisp and active, but also quiet. Even its more outgoing letterforms buckle down and do their jobs for the sake of the text.

Upgrade to a Personal Plan or higher to use Leitura News. If you’re already a paying Typekit customer, enjoy the new fonts! If you’ve never given Typekit a try, sign up (it’s free) and upgrade whenever you’re ready.
