New fonts, more styles from Adobe
Happy Monday! Three more Adobe typefaces have been added to Typekit’s library: Kepler Std, Brioso Pro, and Sanvito Pro, each designed by Robert Slimbach and manually TrueType hinted to look great on screen by the fine folks on Adobe’s type team. Let’s give them a hand for this excellent work.
Kepler, in particular, excels where few web fonts yet have. It’s a high-contrast serif, hearkening back to the days of John Baskerville, but with a touch of humanist influence. Kepler is a wonderful face for body text; its tone is similar to Georgia, but with a warmer, rolling rhythm, and its spacing not quite as loose. Plus, the weights and styles of Kepler available on Typekit are part of a fuller family of condensed, extended, and optically-sized variations that Adobe could someday make available for web use.
